Petrobras announces new increase in gasoline and diesel

This Monday (8) began with the announcement of another increase in fuel prices practiced by Petrobras. This will be the sixth increase in the value of gasoline and the fifth in the value of diesel this year alone.

From next Tuesday (9), diesel will rise R $ 0.15 per liter and gasoline will increase R $ 0.23 per liter in the company's refineries. Thus, the new prices will be R$ 2.86 per liter for diesel and $ 2.84 per liter for gasoline, according to information from the Brazilian Association of Fuel Importers (Abicom) and confirmation from Petrobras itself.

It is worth remembering that the state has been criticized by consumers, market experts and even the President of the Republic, Jair Bolsonaro, because of its practice of excessive increases in fuel prices. The new increase follows oil prices in the international market, recently driven by the maintenance of the production cut made by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC).
