Gas prices in Yucatan will remain under government control till November 30th

MERIDA – It is not ruled out that there could be a slight decrease in the fuel’s price, although this will depend on the gas station owners, said Luis Herrera Fallas, general director of regulation and tariffs of the Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE).

The federal official recalled that on November 30 will be released fuel prices for the Yucatan Peninsula, so that each service station can make the adjustments that it considers to the tariffs, with previous notice to the CRE.

He pointed out that the benefit for consumers is that gas stations will compete in terms of quality, although he did not rule out that there were some who decided to lower their prices to attract customers.

He pointed out that this situation has occurred in the center of the country, where some gas stations have lowered their prices, earning profits due to high sales, although he said that in other cases, attention and service were significantly improved.

What is a fact, he said, is that until now there have been no setbacks in the states in which prices have been released, and in addition, rates have remained stable.

Regarding the product, he said that Pemex is still the distributor, although he specified that there are companies that purchase the fuel and then add it depending on the type of fuel they supply, since there is still no import from other countries.

He noted that this element also allows the CRE to know if there is any anomaly in the gas stations, since it allows to make reports of bad practices that are attended by the corresponding instances.

Similarly, he recalled that in Mexico there are more than 11 thousand service stations, of which just over 2,800 are affiliated to 29 brands distinct from the Pemex company.
