This Wednesday (25) the increase in gasoline prices announced yesterday by Petrobras begins to take effect. The average selling price of gasoline to distributors goes from R$3.08 to R$3.31 per liter, an increase of R$0.23 per liter. The value is 7.47% higher than the current one.

The last time the price of gasoline was readjusted was on December 6, when it was reduced by 6.1%.

Considering the mandatory blend of 73% gasoline and 27% anhydrous ethanol for the composition of gasoline sold at service stations, Petrobras’ share in the consumer price will be, on average, R$ 2.42 for each liter sold at the pump. The final amount passed on to the consumer varies according to the stations.

The discharge was announced days before the meeting of the board of directors, scheduled for this Thursday (26), which will analyze the nomination of Senator Jean Paul Prates (PT-RN) for the presidency of the state-owned company.

According to Petrobras, the increase “accompanies the evolution of reference prices and is consistent with Petrobras’ pricing practice, which seeks to balance its prices with the market, but without passing on to domestic prices the conjunctural volatility of quotations and of the exchange rate”.

Petrobras adopts the PPI (Import Parity Price) as a reference for fuel readjustments, which considers changes in oil prices on the international market, in addition to the dollar exchange rate.

The price of regular gasoline is made up of five items, according to the ANP (National Agency for Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels):

  • Producer price (Petrobras refineries and importers);
  • Ethanol price – the fuel that arrives at the stations has 73% A gasoline and 27% ethanol;
  • Federal taxes – PIS, Cofins and Cide;
  • State tax – ICMS;
  • Distribution, transport and resale.
