Petrobras announces reduction in fuel prices

This Wednesday (02), Petrobras announced a reduction in diesel prices by 6% and gasoline by 3%, after several consecutive increases. Diesel had seven consecutive increases, while gasoline had two. The new values take effect as of this Thursday (03).

In refineries, the new diesel price will be R $ 1.7111 per liter, and gasoline will increase to R $ 1.7698 per liter, after reaching the highest value since January in the August 21 adjustment.

The dollar price is also lower this Wednesday, which influences the prices set by the state company. On August 21, the currency was more than 5.65 reais, and today it reached about 5.37 reais.

The reflex of the readjustment at the service stations is uncertain, and depends on several factors, such as taxes and distribution and resale margins, so that the fall in prices is felt by consumers.
