Petrobras adjusts price of gasoline in refineries

The average price of gasoline in refineries will become more expensive from Tuesday (19). Petrobras will raise the price of fuel: from 0.15 real to 1.98 real per liter. Diesel, in turn, will have its value maintained. The statement was made on Monday (18) by the state.

Nevertheless, the transfer of adjustments in refineries to consumers in fuel stations is not yet guaranteed, as it depends on a number of issues such as distribution margin and resale, taxes and mandatory addition of anhydrous ethanol and biodiesel.

The reason for the adjustment would be the advance of international oil prices in recent weeks. According to a statement sent by Petrobras' advisory board, the company reiterated that its prices are based on import parity, impacted by factors such as oil values and foreign exchange.
