La Jornada reports Friday a.m. that 60% of gas stations in Morelia are closed for lack of gasoline. No indication of when the situation will improve. FYI those planning to drive to, or otherwise visit Morelia soon.

My wife just arrived from Morelia. Yes, it is true-there is a shortage of gas. She found a Pemex with roja gas. Many Pemx closed. Rumor is this is happening all across Mexico so it will hit everyone within a short period of time (rumor). Cause unknown.

The cause is not unknown. It’s because of the crackdown on huachicoleros, and the shortage is pretty much limited to parts of Michoacán including Tierra Caliente. Lots of big and small fish in Pemex are getting fried for their roles in the theft of combustible.

Mexico Daily News on 1/3/19 suggests the "shortage" is much more widespread than just one state- it sounds like it could hit home soon.

Imagina being a gas station owner and having to only buy legal gasoline! The new federal government is finally revoking licenses and locking people up now for selling huachicol. A bunch of former bigwigs at Pemex are now sitting in jail instead of on their yachts. ¡La Cuarta Transformación ha comenzado!
