By the end of 2020, the American company Valero intends for 110 gas stations to use its brand in Mexico; today, most are in Jalisco.
The Valero brand added 50 service stations in our country with the opening of a unit in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco.
The US company already has a presence in six states: 30 gas stations are in Jalisco, 11 in Nuevo León, 3 in Puebla, 3 in Aguascalientes, 2 in the State of Mexico and one more in Coahuila.
By the end of 2020, the company plans to open gas stations in Veracruz, Tamaulipas, Querétaro, Guanajuato and bring together 110 stations under its flag in our country.
The Alpez gas station owns this station, as well as the first gas station in Mexico with the Valero brand, which was inaugurated earlier this year in the city of Guadalajara.
Valero is part of brands, such as BP, Shell and ExxonMobil, which have gained part of the market that was monopolized by Petróleos Mexicanos (Pemex), thanks to the energy reform promoted by the PRI government of Enrique Peña Nieto.
Since 2017, the state-owned production company has lost just over 30% of the gas market under its franchise. However, the company still supplies about 80% of the fuel offered by the 12,500 stations that operate in our country.
