The President and CEO of the American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM), Chet Thompson, has made the following statement regarding the US Administration’s announcement of tariffs on products made in Mexico:
“Imposing tariffs on Mexican products, particularly crude oil, could raise energy prices for US consumers, disadvantage the US refining industry and jeopardise passage of USMCA — all bad outcomes.
