Heavily subsidized. Why is there less gasoline? Because the government's policy is to buy less gasoline from the United States and to produce it here, however, national production is not enough to compensate for what was not purchased.

Between imports and national production, in December 2018, Mexico had one million 144 thousand barrels of gasoline available daily, today it only has 839 thousand, a reduction of 27%.

Producing gasoline in Mexico is still more expensive than doing it in the United States.

Why so little fuel in Mexico. this is not political and please do not make it, it just facts as seen by an insider.

My brother is a marine surveyor and platform inspector and he did inspections for Pemex and all of the companies that had support vessels up to 2014, then came the Odebrecht fiasco.

The refineries in Minatitlan, Tula and Salamanca were supposed to be reconfigured, nothing of that happened they are old refineries that needed to be upgraded, what happened "nothing" they did not have the capacity to produce the quantities needed and no reconstruction to increase capacity was ever done to the tune of 10 million dollars of corruption.

Starting with Felipe Calderon and ending with Enrique Peña-Nieto they decided to sell some of Pemex assets, so be it.

They sold some of the old offshore rigs, that were promptly shut down since the new buyers had no interest in running them, that is were importing the refined oil is more profitable with under the table bribes comes in specially by the higher ups.

The Odebrecht scandal erupts in the USA and in Mexico Pemex nearly goes bankrupt and there is a government change and the principal players all leave Mexico, Felipe Calderon, Enrique Peña-Nieto and the director of Pemex Emilio Lozoya Austin and there is are other individuals implicated in this.

Between 2013 to 2015 the deck of cards collapse and many companies that provided services to the of shore platforms went under, unable to pay docking fees or personnel they anchored the support vessels offshore with no crews on board many have sunk others are moored in port abandoned.
