Much criticized due to exorbitant fuel prices in Brazil, Petrobras threw in the towel and shows that the government is the main culprit of the rise in prices

THE Petrobras married to being criticized as the main culprit for the rise in fuel prices, she decided to go to her official website and show in numbers that taxes on the primary price of oil are the main factor in the increase in gasoline and diesel prices. Remembering that tomorrow (20), there will be another price adjustment, which will naturally cause another wave of protests across the country.

After the readjustment that will take place tomorrow, gasoline will cost an average of R$1.51 per liter and diesel should cost R$1.73, remembering that these are the values without taxes and sold directly from the refinery. It is worth mentioning that these values are based on the national average, free of taxes and that may vary according to the marketed location. Bearing in mind that these reformulations may or may not affect the consumer directly.

According to the National Petroleum Agency (ANP) the average final price of gasoline at stations across Brazil in 2016 was 3.69, in 2018 it was R$ 4.23 a liter, while in this period Petrobras increased only 9 cents. With diesel, it was R$3.05 in 2016 and rose to R$3.40 in 2018, while it increased only 12 cents in its prices, values ranging from 1/6 to 1/3 of the total in adjustments.

The cooking gas

The value of LPG (cooking gas) in updated prices is costing R$ 23.16 per cylinder weighing 13kg. Remembering that this price is for average direct sales with distributors and free of taxes and other charges

Gasoline and diesel prices in Brazil
These are just facts and serve as a comparison parameter between the real value of fuels and how much you have in the final price, there are many taxes that hinder the economic development of the country and the installation of new companies. Bearing in mind that exploring in deep and super-deep waters is expensive, demanding a lot of technology. The price of a barrel starts to rise but is still far from ideal, until then, the state company asks for patience and charges are made to the real culprits.
