Un problema más grande que el muro

 02/09/2017 - 13:59

El pueblo mexicano inauguró el 2017 con un aumento del 20.1% para las gasolinas y un 16.5% para el diésel, un mercado “inédito” de gasolinas en casi 80 años de monopolio de la empresa estatal Pemex, según reporta la BBC.

Este aumento es producto de un nuevo esquema de venta de gasolinas introducido por la reforma energética del país que plantea la erradicación del precio único fijado por el gobierno y las estaciones de una sola empresa, dando paso a una competencia abierta entre varias marcas y gasolineras.
