ANP clears abusive prices at petrol stations

Because of the recent increase in the value of the oil barrel, some posts have triggered the price of their fuels. After some denunciations, the National Agency of Petroleum, Gas and biofuels (ANP) have traveled the Ouitcome bombs in the region of the Federal district in order to verify possible unjustified increases.

Only last Thursday (19), 320 establishments were requested to submit the purchase invoices for the last few weeks. According to the ANP, the value of the fuel is free and stipulated by the supplier, but the abusive collection is not allowed on top of a stock purchased at an old price.

According to Ottomar Lustosa, member of the Regional supervisory nucleus of the ANP, the organ will continue to supervise possible irregularities and refer cases to the entities competent for investigating the excessive values.

Finally, it is important to emphasize that the posts that are caught practicing abusive prices may receive fines that reach up to 1 million reais.
