Culiacan, Sinaloa. – After the exercise of the Revocation of Mandate that will take place next Sunday, April 10, to decide whether or not Andrés Manuel López Obrador continues as president of the Republic could increase the cost of gasoline, warned the local deputy for the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), Luis Javier de la Rocha Zazueta.
The president of the Economic Development Commission of the State Congress indicated that it could increase from 2 to 3 pesos per liter after April 10.
He explained that the problem is that Petróleos Mexicanos (Pemex) having a lower amount than imports, there is a shortage of gasoline, which today, he pointed out, if they do not bring imported gasoline from abroad, which is more expensive than the one that Pemex sells to gas stations that will cause the subsidy to be ‘weak’, it will be ‘short’ and gasoline will increase.
“And gasoline is going to increase, they are waiting, I think, for April 10, which is the day of the Revocation vote, so what is a reality is that the shortage is there and if the Federal Government does not do something to buy at 23 pesos and not at 21 pesos as Pemex is achieving,” he said.
De la Rocha Zazueta called for people to take care not to get into debt and, if they have debts, to settle them as quickly as possible.
Likewise, he stressed that, although inflation closed in the last fortnight of March at 7.28 percent, it is estimated that the inflation index will increase after April 10.
