And why does the US want to see a democratic/capitalist society in Venezuela?
Because it undermines China and Russia that find it easier to co-op dictatorship.

Capitalist democracies are less likely to nationalize natural resources and more likely to let US companies and investors have access to those markets and make money for America, for Americans, especially for the wealthy who fund & lobby & work in the government.
This too but when you bring in expertise and profit driven corporations efficiency goes up and the countries in question can often get a lot more value from their resources. So it can be a win-win depending on the fine print of the contracts signed. It is certainly a better deal than China's offers of loans followed by asset take overs when the country can't pay back the loans.

If the US cared about the oil price they would not be trying to boycott Iran.
