Diesel cost in Mexico vs Diesel cost here

Diesel cost in Mexico vs Diesel cost here

I have a dumb question. In a recent thread in another blog, an RVer bought diesel in Mexico for approximately $2.20 per gallon. As soon as he crossed the border, it was $4.00 per gallon. Why is there such a high price difference? I find it hard to believe the difference is entirely taxes and emission standards (lower sulphur content here).

Does anyone have an explanation?
