Premium gas prices in Mexicali increased last month 11.55 percent on a yearly basis while Regular (known as Magna in Mexico) increased 6.32 percent.

The National Institute of Statistics and Geography released the results of the National Consumer Price Index that revealed an increase in fuel prices.

The continuously-yet-slow climb has been occurring since February after the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Some gas stations — mainly American fuel importers like Costco — had decided to shut down operations due to the high price of US gasoline.

Other stations had decided to rely on government-owned Petróleos Mexicanos company fuel to supply customers — causing supply issues among stations.

The average Magna price per gallon in Mexicali is about $4 while the Premium grade is around $4.30.
