ABSTRACT
The article reports that Texas is the preferred point of entry for Mexican products. It notes that the surging diesel fuel prices has urged Mexican manufacturers and shippers to shift the distribution of these products from Arizona to Texas. Meanwhile, the demand for these import products is continuously escalating in the U.S. since grocery and restaurant buyers turn to these imports in an attempt to compensate with the declining produce production.
