Protests in Mexico after price increase of gas

Protests in Mexico following a price increase of gas at the beginning of this year have spread across the country.

The price of fuel has increased by 14-20%, with the locals stating that those who are getting hurt are the ones who have the least.

While the majority of the protests have been peaceful, demonstrators in some areas have shut down gas stations as well as facilities which belong to Pemex, the state’s oil company. Some of the more violent demonstrations have even led to casualties.

Protesters are blocking traffic between the land-border crossing from Mexico into San Diego with protesters holding signs and only allowing duty-free access for vehicles. These demonstrations have contributed to Mexico's shortages of gas.

If you have been affected by the demonstrations, please remember to contact you car rental agent such as Green Motion in Mexico (Cancun Aeropuerto, Chihuahua Aeropuerto, Cuidad Juarez Aeropuerto, Mexico City Aeropuerto, Monterrey Aeropuerto and many more!) or please contact Green Motion car hire directly at greenmotion.com or +44 (0) 2071864000.
