I can imagine everybody losing their minds over this. 20% is a monumental difference.

Raising anything by 20% is ridiculous and demands the impossible. I don't see how Mexico will be able to afford this if the protests and boycotts do not work.

Obama saw gas prices cut in half. Now that Trump is coming, along with Republican control of the House and Senate, we can expect what we saw the last time this happened: The Great Recession.

Good try NBC Mexico's corruption problems have been going on for decades because of the Drug Cartels and slave labor economics, sooo how NBCis that Trump,s fault. What are we supposed to do send all of our jobs to Mexico and help support their slave labor economics for our Corporations profit out invite them all here so it's easier to create slave labor economics here! Why don't you tell is NBC instead of trying to incite anger at the future President of the US

We're sorry to our Mexican Neighbor, our Co-Human Race.. the electorate system of America has beaten the Majority here.. Keep hoping... America cannot stand alone in the World's Interconnected Economy... PresObama has made so much Progress to everybody, to the Peace loving countries of this world, and the Majority here will not allow, or atleast will stand against', if those progresses will be threatened to dismantle... Then we have the Midterm' in 2018, and hopefuly, by this time, if this coming Administration will mess-up, the Majority here, will start taking back our Government.. #BARACKOBAMA2020

....Mexico has been a dependent of ours for far too long...it's not one of our States or Territories..We are not obligated to support Mexico in any form or fashion..."illegal invaders" onto Our Home Land is not and should not have ever been a debatable subject...

That is the typical political and economical pattern of third world countries: domestic corruption and the psychological dependent on other countries economies. I guess we need to blame it to hundreds of years of being colony of Spain. Mexico had over 100 of yrs to develop its own economy and being less depending of USA but chose not to.

Strange how people blame Trump even though he isn't President. Remember the bs about trickle down, this is the perfect example of Obama policies. The Obama administration ask OPEC to cut output and now Mexico is feelings the effects! Great exiting legacy Barry!

Should Mexico go down, US will see more criminals coming into US! It is like watching your neighbor's house burn and you did not lift a finger to help, then the wind started to blow towards your house! What next is like what you are seeing refugees fleeing Syria and other countries, flooding Europe with their hands full!

Word of caution for Incoming President Trump, you do not want Mexico economy to go south! You will have your hands full with illegal immigrants! The sourcing of finish products in mexico is part of the long term solution to reduce the poverty level, thereby reducing the influx of illegal immigrants to US!

It has been going on for years and people are starting to get sick of it, a broad range of corporate corruption along with government officials and lets not forget law enforcement officers. Corruption runs deep in the veins and heart of Mexico and believe it or not we can already see a civil war unveiling itself because there is a large crowd of state police and military already proclaiming itself againts their own government.

President's have nothing to do with gas prices opeck sets the price according to production. If making more price goes down if they cut production like 2 mounths ago price goes up. Obma bush Clinton trump has nothing to do with it

Boohoo the Mexicans are crying because they're not going to have the jobs Obama wanted them to have. Maybe Mexico should take care of its own people. Then they are crying over gas prices too?! And they are sad because the peso isn't going to be overtaking our dollar. Thank God for Trump, for taking our food from the mouths of jackals.

Wait, what? People in Mexico are not blaming Trump! Yes, he is despised for what he said about mexicans, and yes, people are making fun of the U.S. for electing someone that is as bad as our own president despite the fact of being in a waaaay better place, but the people are not blaming him for increased gas/food prices! Instead of asking Mexican politicians what they think is going on, ask the people. The government has raised gas prices (because the nation's petroleum is controlled by a monopoly) by adding a huuuuge tax based on"production and transportation costs of the petroleum based product" which, frankly, is a bunch of bs. They are saying that if they didn't add that tax, schools would close, and there would be no money to help people in need, which is bs, because it is widely known that if any money was actually missing for those things, is because they pocket it for themselves. Before anyone asks why people elect these folks, let me remind you that those that are properly informed have voted for much more worthy candidates, while others are brainwashed with nonsense by the nations media duopoly, which is practically owned by the government, and works with them to distract everyone while they make laws that only benefit them, and screw the people that elected them (not unlike the U.S.'s new Senate and House of Representatives, and current President-elect)
