Pemex issued the following announcement on Jan. 5.
The supply of gasoline will be normalized as soon as possible
In the State of Mexico, Hidalgo, Jalisco, Michoacán, Guanajuato and Querétaro, distribution operations have increased by up to 20 percent
Petróleos Mexicanos reports that, as part of the Joint Plan of the Government of the Republic to combat fuel theft, the use of safer means of transport has been privileged, which implies changes in delivery logistics to service stations. This has caused delays, affecting mainly the states of Hidalgo, State of Mexico, Jalisco, Michoacán, Guanajuato and Querétaro.
It should be emphasized that there is no shortage of product or price speculation; Our Storage and Dispatch Terminals have enough inventory to cover the demand of the population.
Pemex is doing its best to increase its distribution in the affected states by up to 20 percent more, all by means of self-tanks and tank cars, in order to comply with the timely and sufficient supply to our distributors and consumers.
Also, an appeal is made to users to avoid extraordinary purchases of gasoline, as the supply will be normalized as soon as possible.
Pemex appeals to the understanding and support of society, because with these measures the company seeks to avoid economic losses by the so-called "huachicoleo" or hydrocarbon theft, actions that will result in benefits for all Mexicans.
