    Abstract

    Energy is a decisive and essential factor to provide quality of life, technological development related to its use, and an economic development overview of a given country. This essay presents the expense distribution allocated to the main fuel sources used at Mexican households. The essay herein was carried out for the 1968-2006 period. The main purpose of this essay is to determine the expense allocation of the main energy fuels (electricity, gas, firewood, kerosene, gasoline).The methodology used in this essay is based on the Lorenz curves and Gini coefficient.
