A joint operation carried out by the Treasury and Public Finance Secretariat (SHCP), the Tax Administration Service (SAT), the Financial Intelligence Unit (UIF), the Attorney General’s Office (PGR) the Federal Consumer Protection Agency (Profeco) and Petróleos Mexicanos (Pemex) resulted in the shut down of seven gas stations in the country due to irregular activities in supply and commercialization of fuel as well as tax-related inconsistencies.

The operation was undertaken to guarantee best practices to Pemex consumers, as well as to prevent tax evasion, fraud and money laundering. The National Defense Secretariat along with the Federal Police provided support during shut-downs in Veracruz, Michoacán, Chiapas, Oaxaca and the State of Mexico.

These measures will be carried out permanently. Authorities launched the program “One Liter Liters” to encourage citizen participation through reports on irregularities to ensure adequate commercialization conditions throughout the country.
