There have been several occasions on which the president has called on the dealers so that they help maintain a balance between prices and fulfill the commitment of not making increases that have a considerable impact on the pockets of citizens.
However, elements such as international oil costs, the dollar exchange rate, taxes, the profit margin of gas station brands, logistics costs and even geographical location They mean that the price of fuel cannot remain unchanged.
Therefore, it is important to be informed, government agencies such as the Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE) and the Federal Consumer Protection Agency (Profeco) They constantly publish the updated gasoline prices throughout the Mexican territory.

The price of fuel can vary in Mexico due to a variety of factors such as reference costs, taxes and logistics.
He Reference cost is based on international oil pricessince it is quoted in dollars globally, therefore, the average value of gasoline is modified with respect to the exchange rate between the dollar and the peso.
During the first months of the covid-19 pandemic, the influence of the international prices of oil in fuels when the hydrocarbon decreased until reaching historical figureswhich caused fuel will register very low costsuntil the “black gold” stabilized and with it the value of its derivatives.
The same thing happened, but in an opposite case, during the first half of 2022, when international oil prices skyrocketed and with it the cost of gasoline around the world.
However, there were countries that were less affected due to different measures, such as Mexico, where a subsidy applied by the State kept gasoline prices relatively stable.
This subsidy is a stimulus to Special Tax on Production and Services (IEPS) Federal, which directly influences the price of gasoline and which is determined by the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit (SHCP).
The Costs can also be modified for logistical reasons, that is, transportation and storage, If fuel prices rise when transporting oil and refined gasoline in pipes or by ship, costs will increase.
Other factors that influence fuel prices are due to geographical location.
