The cost of gasoline can vary in Mexico, due to a variety of factors such as: reference prices, taxes and logistics.
The reference price is based on international oil pricesSince it is priced in dollars globally, therefore, the average cost of gasoline in this case will change with respect to the dollar-peso exchange rate.
In Mexico too a tax is paid for the gasoline consumed, that is, the Federal Special Tax on Production and Services (IEPS) and that is determined by the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit, in relation to the exchange rate, international oil reference prices and logistics costs.
As of January 1, 2020, the IEPS increased, which resulted in a adjustment of gasoline prices. In the Regular and Premium there was an increase of 3.33%, according to the Official Gazette of the Federation.
The costs can be modified also for logistical reasons (transport and storage)That is, if fuel prices rise when transporting refined oil and gasoline in pipes or by ship, prices will also increase.
Other factors that influence fuel costs are due to geographic location.
