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$3.40 in 2018, while it increased only 12 cents in its prices, values ranging from 1/6 to 1/3 of the total in adjustments.
The value of LPG (cooking gas) in updated prices is costing R$ 23.16 per cylinder weighing 13kg. Remembering that this price is for average direct sales with distributors and free of taxes and other charges
