Houston companies join high-octane battle over fuel in Mexico
Mexican Energy Secretary Pedro Joaquin Coldwell was asked last year whether his government would allow refiners to increase the concentrations of ethanol in gasoline beyond the 5.8 percent that it had just approved. Coldwell gave an emphatic no.
But just nine months later, the Mexican government changed its regulations to permit up to 10 percent ethanol in gasoline -- the same level as the United States. That ruling is now under court review, but it represents a major victory for American ethanol producers.
