Last increase announced in the transfer to refineries reflects in more than 14% of increase to the consumer's pocket
“In March, the IPTL identified an increase of more than 14% in the price of diesel, reflecting the last increase announced in the transfer to refineries. In the first half of April, this variation of increase retreated, but even so, the scenario is bullish. No region of the country showed a drop in the value of fuel, but a skyrocket in prices that reach more than 5%, as is the case of the South Region”, highlights the Director General of Mainstream of the Fleet and Mobility division of Edenred Brasil.
