Seems like the situation is pretty fluid. Some pipelines have been closed due to theft.

On a similar subject, I was wondering how many of the toll booths are operating between here and tEPIC. There are so many that are unmanned these days. Last time I drove to Maz, it was 50.00US in tolls, ONE WAY. It would be nice to drive that route with a substantial reduction.

Hook...If you can't afford to pay $50.00 in tolls... You can always drive the "Libre"

Hwy driving cost around $0.10 usd p km for a car at that time so Hooks comment is a factor if you make a 2000 km trip with more than two axles.
The libres were too much potholed and slow to be viable unless you were on  2 wheels.

Drive the libre highways in Sinaloa? No thanks. 


Besides, they are generally in terrible shape.


Here is a funny image I found today in a BBC New article about the fuel shortages in Mexico.

You can always stop at a pipeline and fill up.
