The prices will be governed by the official rate of the Central Bank of Venezuela (BCV), as reported by the bank, among which are: natural canned tuna at (1.18 dollars), 1 kilo pork rib (7.50 dollars), one kilo special bologna (4 dollars), 850 milliliters of edible palm oil (2.75 dollars), 850 milliliters of edible vegetable oil (3.2 dollars), 1 kilo of precooked cornmeal (1.20 dollars), wheat 1 kilo (1.30 dollars), pasta 1 kilo (1.50 dollars), white table rice 1 kilo (1.20 dollars), refined sugar 1 kilo (1.25 dollars).
