Isla Mujeres, Q.R. — A gas station on Juárez Avenue in Isla Mujeres has been pointed out as having the most expensive diesel in the state.
Ricardo Sheffield Padilla, head of la Procuraduría Federal del Consumidor (Profeco), reported that the station at Circunvalación Aeropuerto de Isla Mujeres was selling diesel for 21.29 peso per liter. “What happened to OXXO Gas? It was normally average, now it comes out as the most expensive diesel.”
News of the price was made public by Sheffield Padilla during a morning press conference from the National Palace in Mexico City. During his announcement, he also asked Mexico’s gas stations to calibrate their measuring instruments in order to guarantee full liters of fuel.
“Over the last three weeks, there have been more gas stations that have been gradually increasing prices, while we see stability in the Mexican oil mix,” said the federal official.
He said the agency will double efforts to ensure that full liters are dispatched at all gas stations in the country, noting that they have found an increasing number of devices (without giving locations) which could be reducing the amount of fuel pumped to consumers.
