When the price of gasoline rises worldwide, the government provides a fiscal stimulus by stopping or reducing the IEPS fee, which cushions the impact of the increases. When the price of gasoline falls or is maintained, the Ministry of Finance has a margin to reduce the stimulus and collect IEPS.
Since the end of last July, the agency in charge of Rogelio Ramírez de la O began to reduce incentives for Premium and Magna gasolines in view of the fact that their reference prices began to fall worldwide. While diesel, the most expensive fuel, has maintained its fiscal stimuli.
