I wonder if US Arco credit cards would work at the Mexican stations?

In my trip report from last month (August 2017), I photographed two non-Pemex gas stations. The prices were identical to Pemex. One was north of Todos Santos and the other was in Cabo San Lucas...

The new signs may not say PEMEX, but who else sells them gas?
PEMEX will not relinquish control.

I hope the new stations maintain full service. It provides steady work for the locals and enables me to watch others work, which I enjoy. ;)

gas is gas...don't be fooled

if you read the article the gas is already in mexico at the Pemex terminals inside the borders of mexico

its the ARCO GAS STORE for sales that's new

the parent company in the usa refines and sells the same gas to their stations branded as ARCO SHELL EXXON and others

its all marketing

I hope the gas station stores have good coffee...the normal Pemex doesn't...you have to go to OXXO

Indeed it is. The gas in those facilities came from the....do I dare say it.......USA. PEMEX bought it, and PEMEX will sell it to the businesses with the new signs. Not much has changed here.....just the signs.

There's more to it than that. ARCO is making money somewhere along the line. Otherwise, they wouldn't put their name on the stations.

I bet they move to self-serve. Less overhead costs.

That was coffee? I thought it was oil sold by the cup! My can holds more, 23 liters. So there. That means my gas is cheaper!
