Price of cooking gas worries consumers

In addition to the increase in fuel prices, a major concern for the pockets of Brazilians today is the price of cooking gas.

According to a survey by the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE), the price variation of the gas cylinder has affected the way food is prepared. The analysis shows that more than 3 million Brazilians have chosen to use firewood or charcoal to cook, instead of cooking gas.

The pandemic and the change in Petrobras' pricing policy were some of the factors that caused a stir in the market. Thus, petroleum products such as gasoline, diesel and gas today are strongly influenced by the international market price balance. Consequently, the Brazilian currency depreciates against the international price, which directly affects the value of the gas cylinder.
