Things must be slow as I got gas delivered within ten minutes at 9.2 pesos/ltr. My gas company is Los Altos. They also take credit cards without any fees added.

Gas prices are set by the government.They used to go up every month or so.  But they've been coming down for close to a year.

LP gas prices set by the government ?  If that is so how come different gas trucks charge different prices per liter..? 
Years ago the government used to set the price for gasoline, the price of gasoline would be the same everywhere,  but since they opened up the market the prices are different everywhere, gasoline is cheaper in Guadalajara than around Lakeside.

Since PEMEX doesn't have a monopoly anymore the gas prices are flexible.  The propane prices are still regulated and each company can't charge more than the maximum amount.  Same with prescriptions.

Los Altos was $9.6 as of this morning.

I would guess that you got that price from what is painted on one of their truck's tank. From that you deduct the driver's discount offer, not painted, and mine was .4 pesos per liter if I bought 30 or more.

I filled my large tank which was close to empty. The bill came out almost half of what I paid 18 months ago on last fill, and I paid with credit card..Global Gas...

What you pay is not always what you get and the price seems to vary just like the weather and more dependent on the trustworthiness of the operators!!

Strange delivery yesterday.  I tried to call Z-Gas for a bulk delivery - both numbers I have including the web site say service disconnected.  So I called the last driver's card I had.  Two guys came (they have been here before driving a Z-Gas truck).  They were wearing Z-Gas uniforms but driving a Vela Gas truck and the receipt they gave me was for Gas Los Altos.  Price was $9.60 per ltr.  What gives???

Maybe the Z gas truck was hijacked...
