This paper examines price convergence between the major cities of Mexico making use of unit root tests with panel data. If the price deviation is stationary, it is said that there is price convergence and market integration. The results achieved in this paper indicate that the price deviations are temporary (not permanent), and so they tend to return to their average values or long-term equilibrium.
