Mexico City switches to natural gas to face rising gasoline prices

The Head of Government of Mexico City, Miguel Angel Mancera Espinosa, announced new measures in his administration in view of the increase in the price of liquid fuels. “We are working hard on other proposals, these are not going to be the only ones, but this is a second package in the announcements that I commented and offered to the citizens that we will be doing,” he said.

The official announced that the traditional gasoline system will be replaced with CNG technology in 1,500 cars of the capital government. “The Government of Mexico City will install 10 natural gas refuelling stations with different modalities in a period of approximately six months, in order to supply this vehicle fleet,” he added.

The Government will also replace the use of diesel and LPG in 25 boilers by converting them to natural gas. “At this moment we are already testing six boilers with natural gas, they are in the hospitals Rubén Leñero, Peralvillo and Iztacalco, in Xoco, Enrique Cabrera and Xochimilco,” informed Mancera Espinosa.

This continuously growing market will host the region’s most important event in the alternative fuel industry. Altfuels Mexico 2017 will take place from 4 to 7 April at the Convention Center of the World Trade Center building in Mexico City.
