MEXICO CITY, (Reuters) – Mexico’s higher oil prices will bring in extra revenue that will pay for a subsidy to maintain domestic gasoline prices, Gabriel Yorio, the Mexican Deputy Finance Minister, told Reuters Friday.

Yorio explained that the annual inflation of 7.29% (in the first half March) would go up two points to above 9% within the next four months without the subsidy in an interview in his downtown Mexico City office.
