Mexico offensive against fuel theft leaves motorists stranded

Fuel theft is right now, so bad there, they are getting long gas lines like we had in the past. Surreal but the crisis is caused mainly by theft. That is a lot of gas to steal. I heard about this happening but I never dreamed it could have this kind of effect on the country. I’m not sure if this is happening everywhere.

If people are stealing massive quantities from the pipeline, it sounds more like gross incompetence by Pemex.
If true, that fuel would also be available on the black market, likely at a discount vs fuel from the gas station.
Mexico must deal with their corruption problem, embrace the ‘rule of law’
