Petrobras announced this Thursday (01/09) the reduction of 25 cents in the price of gasoline. The adjustment is already valid from this Friday (02/09) where the prices of distributors goes from R$ 3.53 to R$ 3.28 per liter.
Considering the mandatory blending of 73% gasoline A and 27% anhydrous ethanol for the composition of gasoline sold at gas stations, Petrobras’ share of the consumer price will rise from R$ 2.57, on average, to R$ 2.39 for every liter sold at the pump.
This reduction follows 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 international quotations and the exchange rate. .
The President of the Republic, Jair Bolsonaro (PL) took advantage of the adjustment to announce it on social media.
