Mexico welcomes the US from the 70s.

To me it sounds much like the gas shortage in he US in the 70s or even the Alleged fake Gas shortage in Phoenix in 2005(ish).

If you have gas for almost 50% of what we pay here you had better expect a big increase in customers.

TIJUANA – Hundreds of truck and bus drivers in Tijuana spent six to eight hours in line for diesel fuel yesterday after being promised by station supervisors that Pemex, the Mexican government's oil monopoly, would make deliveries.

However, slow distribution frustrated drivers.

Joaquín Aviña, president of the Association of Gas Station Owners in Tijuana, said some transit drivers pushed station employees and screamed at them after they were unable to buy fuel. Diesel fuel is in high demand in Tijuana because its low price is attractive to buyers who might normally fill up in the United States.

“We are getting supplied (with diesel), and we are selling it without even doing inventory,” said Juan Jose García, supervisor of a Pemex station. “But we cannot keep up with the number of customers, even though they have been waiting for several hours.”

Héctor Campa of the federal consumer protection agency in Baja California said it had received two complaints about gas stations selling diesel to only certain customers.

He said if a station has diesel, it is required by law to sell it to whomever wants to buy it.

Polaris Ranger 1st Side-by-Side to Finish Baja

The RANGER RZR continues to be a force in the racing world, this time by not only winning the UTV class at the Baja 500 but by being the first side-by-side to ever finish the race.

After being the last vehicle to start, Mark Lindsay's team, consisting of Lindsay, driver Phil Holdsworth and co-driver Michael King, raced the sole RANGER RZR entry to the finish line in 19:49:30. Thirty-three miles into the race, the challenge of a loose, rocky incline brought the vehicles in front of Lindsay to a stand-still. When it was finally his turn, he blew through the obstacle with ease. The RANGER RZR did well through the sand washes, silt beds, whoops and everything the race threw its way.

"Being the first side-by-side to finish and win the Baja 500 UTV Class is a true testament to the quality and ability of the RANGER RZR," said Craig Scanlon, product line sales manager for the Polaris Side x Side Division. "We congratulate Mark Lindsay and his team for continuing to show the RANGER RZR can dominate even in the most extreme conditions."

When asked why he chose a RANGER RZR for the race, Lindsay responded, "For the Baja? This isn't farm work, you need a real machine out here."

Lindsay's team was sponsored by Afraidium Racing, FST, BS Sand, Iron City Polaris, Bronco Clutch, F2 Racing, HMF Exhaust, The Lindsay Group RE/MAX, MAXXIS tires, TireBalls, OMF Wheels and King shocks.
