La Completa gas station, located in Mérida Yucatan, is one of the 12 in the country that refused to be verified by inspectors of the Federal Consumer Attorney (Profeco), to find out if their gas pumps are dispatching the exact amount of fuel.
The head of Profeco, Ricardo Sheffield Padilla, informed that “La Completa” was one of the twelve gas stations across the country that will face a fine of 800 thousand pesos for refusing to be inspected.
“We will verify again, this time with the use of public force if necessary, because these businesses are obliged to allow periodic reviews,” said Sheffield Padilla in the presence of Andrés López Obrador, during the president’s morning conference from the National Palace.
The gas stations that will be fined for refusing to be inspected are located in Morelos, Yucatan, Nuevo Leon, Tlaxcala, Puebla, Jalisco, Coahuila, Veracruz, Sinaloa and Baja California.
For the first time, the Profeco conducted the inspection of 125 stations randomly chosen, of which 41 were closed for not delivering the exact quantity of fuel. Another 50 gas stations were temporarily closed, nine of them due to failures in their pumps.
