First Toilet Paper, Now Venezuela is Running Out of Newsprint

By: Andrew Rosati | PRI

Jose Luis Farrera sells newspapers in Maturín, in Venezuela’s oil heartland. But he says lately, he can’t get enough papers to supply his customers.

"We used to sell about 200 papers a day,” he says. “Now, it’s down to about 80.”

The problem isn’t a lack of interest; it’s a shortage of newsprint.
