Fuel price transparency, news & training to help you successfully navigate Mexico's changing fuel markets.

In 2013, the Mexican government implemented energy reforms that opened up its fuel markets to outside investment for the first time ever, creating unique opportunities and challenges for business looking to expand across the border. Market liberalization continues to fundamentally transform Mexico’s energy sector in 2018, with concerns like securing fuel supply, developing a pricing strategy for gasoline, diesel, LPG and natural gas and maximizing ROI for station owners, gas and oil companies, refiners, and traders.

OPIS (Oil Price Information Service) is the long-time fuel price standard for supply contracts in the United States. Our data, news and analysis help stakeholders across the fuel supply chain navigate market volatility and buy and sell oil products with confidence.
