Venezuela to sell cut-price heating oil to U.S. poor

Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez said on Monday his government plans to sell as much as 66,000 barrels per day of heating fuel from its U.S. Citgo refinery to poor communities in the United States.

We are going to direct as much as 10 percent of the production, that means 66,000 barrels, without intermediaries, to poor communities, hospitals, religious communities, schools," Chavez told reporters at a press conference.
Que? I say again, que? Why are religious communities going to get cut rate heating fuel? I'd really like to know what this means.
