Mexico gasoline price hike is a 'responsible' measure: president

Reuters

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto said on Wednesday that a double-digit gasoline price spike that took effect on Jan. 1 was a "responsible" measure that the government took in line with international oil prices.

Government-set fuel prices in Mexico jumped by between 14 and 20 percent ahead of a gradual, year-long price liberalization the Pena Nieto administration has promised to implement this year.
