Alejandro Díaz-Bautista, an economist at the Colegio de la Frontera Norte, told Frontera that the country is breaking its budget with gasoline subsidies.
On Saturday, the gasoline price rose to 10.18 pesos per liter, or $2.82 a gallon, from 10.09 pesos per liter.
While it was the fifth gas hike in Mexico this year, the cost of gasoline across the border in San Diego is generally over $4 a gallon.
The story said Mexico's gasoline subsidy cost around 55.4 billion pesos ($4 billion) during the first quarter of 2012; the subsidy was around $12 billion for all of 2011.
Díaz-Bautista said the subsidy is greater than the amount that goes to the Popular Insurance program or the Oportunidades anti-poverty program and encourages the use of the air-polluting automobile, points made by New Alliance presidential candidate Gabriel Quadri during Sunday's debate.
