Cheap diesel in Mexico, trucks seized
Maybe government-controlled fuel is not a bad thing after all. Now that diesel is no longer cheap in the U.S., citizens are hopping the boarder to Mexico for cheaper sludge. Mexico controls all of their gasoline and diesel sales through the state-owned Pemex, and the diesel can be as much as $2.00 less per gallon south of the boarder. But before you start heading to your nearest boarder town, remember to leave any auxiliary tanks at home. If you are seen as transporting fuel in a vehicle not designed for it, the Federales would like a word with you. While you can fill up your car’s tank, any extra tanks with fuel will get you a fine and your vehicle confiscated for up to four days.
