As I use diesel, today the price converts to $3.70/gal in Baja. Today at Costco in Chula Vista the price is $2.53/ gal. About 32% more??? And this is supposed to be open market price...I don't think so. Sounds like domestic robbery from Pemex. Glad I have a 2,000 plus mile cruising range in my F-350. My trips from San Diego to Loreto and back no problem.
Man i thought i had some range with my measly 100 gallons in my f450,you got me beat.

Just heard on the radio while driving this morning that gas prices here in the US this year (not sure when) will become the highest they have been in the past 5 years.
The unknown fisherman:p:
That would suck big time. I remember 07-08 time frame when diesel was $5 a gallon. I was burning 80 gallons a week. I was running to TJ getting it for $1.80 a gallon because it was 5.76 pesos a liter.

I was down at the San Ysidro on the US side of the Border today and you wouldn't believe the lines at the gas stations blocking traffic in the street.
I hadn't heard what was going on until later today on the radio in the car almost 85% of the cars I saw had Baja Plates.
Its really to bad I wonder what the price is at Hotel Coral and Mag Bay, East Cape then Cabo Wow !!

Our corporations oil to gas pay fees and taxes that are crazy, what subsidies? This stuff will even out and we will pay more, Mexico needs higher wages, thats the only thing that will solve multiple problems. Deregulation should add better jobs, money for refineries, until then we just need to support or friends to the south, keep traveling, fishing, spending money wisely. If you what cheap fuel up here be c a refull who you vote for, buying big oil stock, put dividends in your tank, tough times good luck Mexico, always take stuff down you can give away, every little bit helps. The hobo fisherman. Corn to fuel subsidies, yep eat more corn,piss in your tank! !!

Elon Musk is grinning from ear to ear as the oil companies help put themselves out of business.
Musk 70% subsidies from Obama, think he'll like the new administration, think Stanley Steamer, cars running on coal, without subsidies his cars will double in price. Really doesn't have much to do with mexico. Glad when we can get back to fishing, saving the world p asses time on a rainy day, hope all our friends are ok in baha, !

Ours is a rigged system too when they can predict a price increase so far in advance because the price increase will be created by the producers not the market.

Consumers are so stupid. We have the control. Reduce your gas usage wherever possible worldwide and the asshats will be begging us to buy more gas at < than $2.00. Remember our blood thirsty govt adds 40% taxes to the price.

Ya a few billion people in China and India that are just discovering: motor vehicle's doesn't help the equation much. The sad truth is there's a price for gas it can't stay below cost forever and government will pile on taxes especially in states like California. Better pay is the only way out for our Southern friends.

Forbes places the oil subsidies at $10 billion to $52 billion, depending on which politician you ask.

IMHO, Mexico is headed to towards major inflation on household goods and higher gas prices. I have seen it over the past 3 years. I slight raise in all goods and services. Wages have increased, but not at the rate of common goods. Gas and utilities has not been touched for the most part. Now gas and utilities are going to increase , lets guess 40% over th next year., this will be reflected in a spike in all consumables nationwide, inflation.

Just follow the $$. The peso has went from 13:1 to 20:1. If you are charging dollars and paying pesos, you are doing pretty well, no matter what the costs of fuel and goods have risen to.

Better wages is all that can help, tricky though, more wages, more inflation, the farmers biggest group. I wouldn't mind paying a little more for vegetables if it would help. Raise pay and charge more on exports?

Wonder what the isolated gas stations(such as Gonzaga Bay/Bay of LA) that have no competition will 'float' up to?

Being a small isolated (captive?) market, Pemex stations at places like Gonzaga and LA Bay, I'm sure their fuel will go up like a Polaris missile. At least until some enterprising locals buy it cheaper someplace else, pick-up truck it in and sell out of 55 gal. steel drums in their front yard......sound familiar?
