Great to see gasoline prices holding down low on this trip. Still less than 22 pesos per liter, while back home in Canada it went from 1.19 CAD to over 2.20 per liter in past 6 months. Governments are wringing their hands in glee over the extra climate and excise tax revenues and wondering where they can spend it to buy more votes. Inflation they say is all because of Putin and war in Ukraine.

Inflation is happening worldwide, not just in the US.

Mexico:

"Mexico annual inflation at 21-year high, more rate hikes seen

Consumer price inflation rose 7.45% in the year through March, way more than the central bank's target of 3%, with a one-percentage-point tolerance range above and below that, the government's INEGI statistics agency said on Thursday."

https://www.reuters.com/world/americas/mexico-annual-inflati...

I just got back from 6 months in BCS and I spent more money per month than I have in previous years, staying in the same place, and doing the same things.

Necessities in Baja still really cheap when i bought last week, gas 21.49/liter... drinking water still 12 pesos; no idea what it costs each month for equivalent power and household water compared to a year ago as we don't buy it. What I did see were big increases in tires (over 20 % in 6 months)and other imported goods. and I'm guessing the vast majority of that inflation is caused by imports.

On the subject of “Inflation” in Baja!

We just returned from CaliMax. Pork chops 3 large chops that would have cost about $6 in California for 41 Pesos plus a 14 Peso discount for having a CaliMax card!

You do the math!

The Inflation isn’t in Baja!

Comparing Mexican prices to American prices and concluding there is no inflation in Mexico doesn't make any sense.

"Inflation is at 7.72%, a two-decade high in Mexico, eating into wallets for millions of poor people that Lopez Obrador vowed to make a priority."

SF&H,

I never said there was no inflation in Mexico! I point out that things from the US sell for much lower prices in Mexico than they do in the US, like gas, electricity, water and pork!

BTW, inflation in Mexico that is “eating into the wallets of the poor” is less than the almost 9% rate in the US and the guy there in the WH also promised to fix things too!

Talk is cheap!

Well, you said; "The Inflation isn’t in Baja!"

Maybe not in your shopping experience. One person.

We had our teeth cleaned in Algodones the other week at Rubio Dental. Price went from $30 US to $50 US. The office manager said they get all their equipment and supplies from the US and prices have doubled this year.

The inflation is worse in the US. The stuff from the US costs more in Mexico BUT even with import duties it’s still cheaper to buy in Mexico than it is to buy in the US! Just because people make more in the US doesn’t mean inflation of almost 9% doesn't matter!

That makes no sense at all. Is it cheaper in Mexico or not?

BB,

Two examples.


“We had our teeth cleaned in Algodones the other week at Rubio Dental. Price went from $30 US to $50 US. The office manager said they get all their equipment and supplies from the US and prices have doubled this year.”

Even though the price almost doubled (because supplies from the US cost more!) it’s still way less than the $90 - $400 charged in the US for the same cleaning.

Then there is gasoline which is around $4/gallon in Baja and $4.58 - $6.30 just north of the border! In California gas has almost doubled in a few months. In Mexico it has increased 1 -2 Pesos/L in the same period.

no doubt its a burden on most mexicans, for the gringo its small potatoes with the exception of housing, buying or renting its absolutely skyrocketed with no end in sight. once again folks are flocking to baja...now I can only speak for the tijuana-ensenada corridor, next time down see all the high rises being built and look at the prices!



there's only two things in life but I forget what they are........

Gasoline production is nationalized in Mexico. Hence you can't make an apples to apples comparison as I've stated prior. The Government controls the price charged in Mexico.

The price to get teeth cleaned went up in both countries. It's always cost more to get your teeth cleaned nob. The better question is why? I thought the US healthcare system was far superior to Mexico's (sarcasm):light:

Inflation around the world:

https://tradingeconomics.com/country-list/inflation-rate

Come on guys, we've been in a low inflation, bull market for 12 years. It's coming to an end. The economy is cyclical, and now pretty much worldwide. No one person, one country, one political party is responsible. But Putin's invasion of Ukraine has had an effect.
