In late December, the Trade Secretariat (SECOFI) implemented its scheduled increase in the price of tortillas and milk. Under the increase, the price of pasteurized milk was raised to 4.00 pesos (US$0.51 cents) per gallon in Mexico City and 22 states, an increase of 0.40 centavos (US$0.05 cents) from the previous price of 3.60 pesos (US$0.46 cents). Similarly, the price of tortillas increased by 30 centavos per kg to between 1.70 pesos (US$0.21 cents) and 2.00 pesos (US$0.25 cents), depending on the region of the country.
