Mexico suspends gasline subsidy as Americans cross border for deals
MEXICO CITY – Mexico, which has been financing gas to relax cost spikes, said on Saturday the strategy wouldn’t have any significant bearing in the U.S.border area this week, refering to deficiencies as more Americans drive south to fill their tanks.
The suspension of the endowment from April 2-8 covers urban communities in the boundary territories of Tamaulipas, Nuevo Leon, Coahuila, Chihuahua, Sonora and Baja California, including Tijuana, one of the world’s most active line intersections.
Mexico’s money service said in a proclamation there was a fuel lack nearby “from an unevenness among organic market.”
“In the United States, fuel costs are higher than in Mexico, and residents of that nation cross the line to load up,” the money service said.
As fuel costs have spiked after Russia attacked Ukraine, more individuals living in the United States are driving across the line into Mexico looking for lower gas costs.
Mexico’s appropriation has been supported by the public authority of President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who has long vowed to protect shoppers from sharp cost climbs at the siphon.
In a meeting with Reuters on Friday, Deputy Finance Minister Gabriel Yorio said Mexico wanted to utilize the additional income from higher oil costs to sponsor homegrown gas and diesel costs.
