Whether all this oil is an outright gift is a question no one has been able to answer. It could be a gift. Castro, Inc. is so broke it can’t pay for this much oil. But maybe it’s being purchased at a discount on credit, which would end up being a gift anyway, since Castro, Inc. never pays its debts.
