Border Run for Gas and Tacos

    A flashy sign displaying a gas pump hose with the American flag and the dollar sign is now seen at gas stations all over Tijuana these days. And there are others: “Here it is! Cheaper than in the USA. Full Service and Quality” and others with a similar message.

    The marketing strategy is simple; appeal to Mexicans who cross the border daily for work/shopping as well as U.S. citizens who come south of the border to visit and – increasingly – solely because of the price of gas.

    The rush of bargain seeking fuel buyers from north of the border may bring some new headaches to residents of and travelers to northern Baja California where gas stations in San Felipe and San Luis Gonzaga have recently reported they were all out of fuel during different days this last week.

    I have definitely noticed that a lot of people in San Diego county are heading to TJ for gas and that includes some who swore they would never drive in Mexico.

    You’d think that hybrid vehicle sales would be going through the roof right now.

    Yesterday my husband saw some gas stations that had no gas left in Tijuana.
