Price of Fuel: Mexico Fines US Drivers Seeking Cheap Diesel

Click to Read

Price of Fine Fuel: Mexico Fines US Drivers Seeking Cheap Diesel One Mexican border city has begun fining US drivers who cross the border to fill extra drums, tanks or barrels with government-subsidized Mexican fuel. The city of Ciudad Acuna, across the border from Del Rio, Texas, said Friday that it fined four US residents for carrying extra diesel and would impound their cars until they pay. The fines equal 70 percent of the value of the diesel confiscated. US drivers can fill up their own vehicles, but carrying extra fuel containers back across the border violates customs regulations.

I think it's funny that Mexico is fining Americans who are trying to save money or make a buck. I would've expected the American government to do that. :oy:
