nergy News: Exploration Success for Pemex

As you likely know, Pemex, Mexico’s state-owned oil company has a monopoly on gasoline sales in Mexico. Gasoline for regular gasoline now costs about $2 USD a gallon when the exchange rate is 15 pesos to a $1 USD. Sold in liters for ? pesos per litter.

But, did you know that Pemex has just announced five new shallow-water discoveries in the Gulf of Mexico. The new fields are off the coast of the state of Tabascocand the state of Campeche. The new output is expected to achieve output of 200,000 barrels of oil and 170 metric cubic feet of gas a day o more within three years. If these discoveries are  “biggest exploration success in five years.” … very good news for Pemex, for the industry and for our country.” Pemex chief Emilio Loyoza was recently quoted as saying. 

Let’s all hope he’s right and that the government keeps our gasoline costs low and predictable here at Lake Chapala and all across Mexico. It’s a big beautiful country to explore, but as great as the other places are, none, all things considered, beat Lake Chapala, Mexico 

All for now, Tu amigo, Sid Grosvenor

    I have to disagree with your cost of gasoline. A US gallon is 3.8 liters and the price per liter for regular is 13.57 pesos. So 13.57 pesos x 3.8 = 51.566 pesos per gal.
    51.566 divided by 15.4896 pesos per dollar = $3.33 a gallon. It is about $2.00 a gallon at the boarder in order to be competitive with the US and that price is only at stations close to the border to keep Mexicans from crossing the border to buy gas.
