Michoacán remains one of the states hardest hit by the fuel shortage. 70% of the gas stations in Morelia alone are without gasoline. If you're going, plan accordingly. Please don't buy huachicol.

7 de cada 10 gasolineras permanecen cerradas en Morelia

An outgrowth of the shortage: Buying gas and putting in any type container to carry back to Morelia. Peoigoso and it is a fact-the Pemex in Buena Vista does a thriving business for use like this.

What I understand about the word as relayed to me by various people who I consider to be reliable.....

Huachicol is a word that originally was used to refer to adulterated or watered down alcoholic drinks. The word was then adapted as slang to refer to watered down gasoline that some vendors would sell to make more profit. Now it is more popularly used to refer to stolen gasoline. Huachicol is stolen gas and Huachicolero are the people who steal and sell the gasoline.

Wife is driving to Morelia. She is at Little Italy, near Urapan I think. Left early this a.m. 3 Pemexes closed so far. They bought two gas approved containers as insurance. More later---

Wife is in Morelia. Gasoline availability is "spotty"---mas o menos.

She does not advise travel. She made trip only because she has important med appointment.
