The Venezuelan government reversed course Wednesday, announcing that its US oil subsidiary would continue to provide free home heating oil to poor Americans two days after the government announced that the program had been suspended. Venezuela reinstated the program, which saved some 180,000 US households around $260 apiece in 2008. That covered about one month’s heating bill. (Christian Science Monitor)
