MEXICO CITY May 26 (Reuters) - The central bank of Mexico sold $74 million on Tuesday at an average price of 15.3123 pesos per dollar, the bank said, part of an auction program to boost foreign exchange liquidity following a slide in the peso currency.

The central bank offers $52 million a day, but it had sold just $30 million on Monday amid low demand due to a holiday in the United States, and the bank offered the remainder on Tuesday.
