The price of fuels can vary in Mexico due to a variety of factors such as reference costs, taxes and logistics.
The reference cost is based on international oil prices, since oil is quoted in dollars globally, so the average value of gasoline is modified with respect to the exchange rate of the dollar and the peso.
In Mexico, a tax is also paid for fuel consumed, called the Federal Excise Tax on Production and Services (IEPS), which is determined by the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit (SHCP) and affects the price of gasoline.
Costs may also change for logistical reasons, i.e. transport and storage, if fuel prices rise when transporting oil and refined gasoline in pipes or by ship, costs will increase.
Other factors that influence fuel costs are given by geographical location.
