I read on the Maz board that the PRI administration raised the price of non-premium gasoline to 20.11 pesos per liter. Probably the best exchange you might get would be about 19/1, pesos/dollars, right now. Simple math at 3.785 liters per gallon now had fuel at 4.00/gallon. 

Can anyone confirm what the price per liter is in San Carlos? Just trying to verify the post I read. Not much one can do about it.

It was 16.60 last Thursday when I left. I remember it was around 7.75 when I moved to San Carlos in 2010. If the Peso had not gone down in value so much against the Dollar it would be over $5 per gallon.

That's very true to us (US) gringos! BUT it puts many Mexican folks back to via pata? And again using the simple math, several years back, the same 4 liters would have cost us around 8 dollars a gallon. Peso at about 10 to one and liter at 20 pesos?? If the dollar returns to that value, some folks will have something other than water and road repair to ponder?? Happy New Year. Enjoy Sonora! Ynot

For sure varies a bit, transportation, quality, tax, advertising, more tax, LOL. Wyoming around 2.25, Phoenix around 2.20. And of course here a liter being larger than a quart, (depending distributor) LOL. Probably costing 600 to 800 a month US to heat your Wyoming home about now, more or less will equal your monthly mortgage payment?? Gotta love living here in San Carlos! Happy new year.

I'm still waiting to see if some of these new filling stations that are competing with Pemex (in pumping only) are proving to be more accurate with the stated quantity. Are they any of these new stations (BP, Mobil, Shell) in the G/SC area yet?


Thanks, Bullshipper. Keep an eye on the pump price. Maybe they just havent corrected in San Carlos yet. Or maybe competition is causing variances from station to station.

I'm still in Boise. To heat our 1600 sq/foot home right now is only about 100.00/month with natural gas. Our temps have mostly been in the upper 20s/mid 30s during the day with the occasional night in the teens. Fahrenheit, of course. We keep the house at 68 in the morning and evening, 65 during the day and 62 at night. It runs a lot at night. 

Municipal natural gas is a wonderful thing, if you are on that grid.

Some parts of Wyoming are much colder than Boise, though.

According to an article I read, Pemex does not set the price anymore. I guess we will have to start checking the price at the different locations. As I read it, each station can now charge whatever they want.

Hmmm. But it wouldn't stop the PRI from deciding to raise the taxation rate on fuel, I guess.

Definitely bears shopping around, I bet.

Yes PJ, Gillette, WY. Northeast down off the Big Horns in the high plains where Clint, High Plains Drifter His self wouldn't venture?? Nothing but barbed wire fence to cut the wind. Mostly electric heat for years, then became the world's largest producer of methane gas from the shallow coal, also largest producer of coal in the world. Also most expensive home heating if truth were told. From a very large state with the least population of the 50. Still old west customs where men are men and sheep are nervous?? Ynot

Pretty sure AM PM is owned by Arco, which is owned by British Petroleum. Wonder if it will be an Arco or a BP station. Or it could have been the portion of Arco sold to Tesoro, at some point in the not-to-distant past. 

In any event, it will be refreshing to have a chance at more accurate gas pours. Assuming that these stations are company (not individual) owned like most Pemex stations, there won't be as much motivation to alter pumps by persons working the station.

There is a Chevron in Navojoa on the main street too.

We pay a bit more than $17 a litre here in Alamos because we are so isolated. A truck has to come all the way out here just to service the 4 stations in Alamos and 1 in Los Tanques. That's it until you hit Chihuahua or Sinaloa. However, I will comment that allot of fuel is sold here, all the stations are always backed up...

Do the other stations have a different price than Pemex stations in the same town? Are individual Pemex stations charging different prices now?
