Looting in the urban area of Veracruz, Boca del Río and Medellín continues to accompany protests against the hike in gasoline prices. Losses are estimated at 100 million pesos ($4.6 million).

Roadblocks have been placed on main streets around the area to demand authorities to reconsider the increase in prices. Protesters alternate the flow of traffic and prevent taxi drivers to circulate or complete services.

José de Jesús Sampiery, president of the Veracruz National Chamber of Commerce (Canaco), claimed that stores should remain open despite the mounting levels of insecurity during the past hours.
