NEW YORK--U.S. exports of gasoline to Venezuela climbed to a record high of 85,000 barrels a day in November, data released Friday by the federal Energy Information Administration show.

The volume of gasoline shipped to the South American member of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries was more than double the October level of 39,000 barrels a day and topped the previous record of 68,000 barrels a day set in September. EIA data show the U.S. has been exporting gasoline to Venezuela in nearly every month since December 2011, when the first shipments since March 2003 occurred.

The exports of gasoline come as Venezuela has suffered persist operating problems at some refineries. The country's largest refinery, Amuay, still has recovered only a little more than 50% of capacity since it was shut down after an August accident.

Despite the EIA data, Venezuela's Oil Minister Rafael Ramirez again denied in recent weeks that the nation is importing gasoline. He said on state-run television that Venezuela only imports gasoline additives, such as metyl tertiary butyl ether, and said data showing gasoline imports isn't accurate.

EIA data show that in addition to the gasoline exports, the U.S. has been exporting MTBE to Venezuela since 2005 and shipped 25,000 barrels a day in November, making it the biggest customer for U.S. exports of gasoline additive, ahead of Mexico.

From 1993 until early 2011, the U.S. was a net importer of modest volumes of gasoline from Venezuela.

Anon 5:42 PM and anon 6:05 PM,

Are you guys OK? How did you come to the conclusion that we do not publish comments that do not conform to our viewpoints? Even the authors, let alone the commentators, of this site hold different and sometime opposing viewpoints on the issues facing Iran. However, we don’t publish comments if they constitute personal attack on others or if they use foul language. Now, what did you guys have to say about Tehran? Wasn’t that the subject of this post?

if you want progressive and vibrating debate post all comments,you always condemned press t.v as iran propaganda machine,but you stop posting my comments where you need to post it, a day or two later you posted it under another unrelated subject.okay i guess it is your site and you are the web master.i tell you one thing "thank god for press t.v" millions cross the world are watching it today.hope your site get like that some day,but you must post all views not the one you like.

What you suggest cannot be done. Blogger does not allow us to publish comments under different posts, we can only publish it or not under the post intended by the writer. And, as said before, we only refuse to publish personal attacks and foul language, which are only a small fraction of the comments we receive. Do you remember which comment of your has been deleted. Post it again and I'll post it if we had not done so by mistake.
