Roadtrippers in Bolivia are reporting that gas stations are refusing to sell gas to vehicles with foreign plates since a new law passed in December 2011.
Gasoline in Bolivia is very cheap due to government subsidization, which causes persons to drive in from neighboring countries such as Argentina and Chile to fill up their tanks. To counteract this, Bolivia passed a law in December of 2011 stating that vehicles with foreign plates need to pay a price about 3 times higher than the standard rate.
