 Tackling Toilet Paper Crisis in Venezuela
Venezuelans are experiencing a huge shortage of toilet paper, and stores seem to have run out of stocks.

The demand is huge and supply is so short, that the government has ordered 50 million rolls to meet the demand.

Most specialists have blamed the current situation to price controls, which has caused shortage of staple items.

Commerce Minister Alejandro Fleming has blamed the media for deliberately creating a demand for toilet paper, causing more confusion and anarchy in the nation.

Alejandro Fleming confirmed he will be making changes to remedy the situation. "The revolution will bring 50 million rolls of toilet paper. We are going to saturate the market so that our people calm down."
