MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexicans faced with a fuel shortage are turning to bikes and scooters, generating business for startups that rent those alternative rides, but straining operations for ride-hailing service Uber in some cities.

The shortages came after Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador closed some vulnerable pipelines in a crackdown on fuel theft. There have been long lines at pumping stations this week in several states.

Why fuel shortage?

Malaysia last week declared largest gas price reduction per liter... today another reduction.

Call Mexico to hire Dr M as their President la. Problem solved.

Watch the video, the explanation is there. It has nothing to do with gas price but theft.

Cut price any mediocre leaders also know.

Gas price reduction means poor people who have no car, is paying tax for people who drives. Is not like Malaysia economic is good. ringgit weakening.

Gas shortage may halt export of Mexican avocados

The biggest story in Mexico right now has nothing to do with US President Donald Trump's proposed border wall.

Gas stations in at least six Mexican states and the country's capital have been running dry for days. It's provoked a major public outcry. And there's some concern exports could be affected.

The Reuters news agency reported this week that the gas shortage could get in the way of Super Bowl party plans if tens of thousands of tons of avocados expected to arrive in the coming weeks can't make it north of the border.

"Cue the guacpocalypse," Eater quipped.

During Super Bowl week alone, 100,000 tons of Mexican avocados are consumed throughout the United States, a spokesman for the Mexican Association of Avocado Producers and Exporters told CNN in 2017.

Mexico’s drug cartels, now hooked on fuel, cripple the country’s refineries

Gangs pressure refinery workers to tap the lifeblood of Mexico’s oil industry. One former worker fled, while one former gang member turned informant.....

Because of government offensives that toppled narco kingpins in recent years, Mexico's drug cartels have splintered and are eager for new sources of revenue. Now, their increasingly dominant role as fuel thieves pits two of the country’s biggest industries - narcotics and oil - against one another.

The cash-rich cartels, believed by the Mexican government to generate well over $21 billion each year, are an increasing threat to Pemex, which in 2016 reported revenue of about $52 billion and generates about a fifth of government income.

“The business is more profitable than drug trafficking because it implies less risk,” said Georgina Trujillo, a ruling party congresswoman who heads the lower house energy commission. “You don’t have to risk crossing the border to look for a market,” she added. “We all consume gasoline. We don't all consume drugs.”
