The Comisión Reguladora de Energía of Mexico has implemented a netback rule for linking the Mexican natural gas price to the Texas natural gas price. This paper shows that in an open economy where agents can chose between gas and alternative fuels, and where the density function describing the distribution of agents along the pipeline can have intervals that are empty and mass points, the netback rule is Pareto optimal.// La Comisión Reguladora de Energía de México ha implantado una regla de enlace hacia atrás para unir el precio del gas natural mexicano al precio del gas natural de Tejas. Este ensayo demuestra que en una economía abierta, en la que los agentes escogen entre el gas y otros combustibles, y en la que la función de densidad que describe la distribución de los agentes a lo largo del gasoducto puede tener intervalos vacíos y puntos de acumulación, la regla de enlace hacia atrás es óptima en el sentido de Pareto.
