Canacintra business chamber urges doubling the number of gas stations in the state…

MERIDA — Next year, the installation of 250 new gas pumps will begin in Yucatan under the brands Costco, Gulf, ExxonMobil, Texaco, Lukoil, Valero, Glencore, Walmart, Supercarga, and others, thanks to the recent market opening.

The Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE) said that at the national level and in Yucatan there is a shortage of gas stations per inhabitant, which puts the country at a disadvantage against nations like the United States, Italy and Brazil.

To give a solution to this future problem a study was done by the Department of Urban Development and Environment (Seduma), and the results detailed that for the state there is a projected growth of about 250 gas pumps to install in the coming years.

But the National Chamber of the Transformation Industry (Canacintra) has a different idea, and its president Juan Manuel Ponce Díaz said that due to the accelerated demographic growth recorded in Yucatan, with its consequent increase in vehicles, it is necessary to double the number of gas stations contemplated by the authorities. In 20 years Yucatan will need at least 500 new stations, instead of the 250 that are estimated in the official plans.

According the Seduma study, in Mexico there are 10,560 inhabitants per gas station; in that sense the Federal Organization announced that at least 10 gas station brands will come to the region, starting next year. Those brands will compete with those that are already established like Oxxogas, La Gas (Lodemo Group) and with the government owned national brand Pemex, especially when from 2018 fuel imported by different brands to Pemex can be sold on the national market.
