For its part, it should be remembered that a year ago the new Gas Bienestar program was announced, led by the Mexican government with the aim of selling bottles with this component at cheaper prices.

In this sense, Octavio Romero Oropeza, general manager of Petróleos Mexicanos (PEMEX) indicated that the project began almost a year and a half ago.

“Their goal is to bring gasoline to people from the poorest families, especially in Mexico City. Today we sold two million bottles which generated 600 million pesos in savings for families who have purchased this product,” the manager said.

Gustavo Álvarez, director of Gas Bienestar, assured that to date the program covers nine of the 16 town halls of Mexico City and has at least 129 routes and benefits around 144,000 people.
