Petrobras applied a price reduction on petroleum products in its refineries as of Thursday 6. The litre of gasoline will cost 4.3% less, diesel, 4.4%, S10 diesel for thermal power plants 4,6%, and marine diesel, 4.5%. Petrobras has not increased gasoline since December 1 and diesel since December 21. The accumulated fall in the year is R $ 0.02156 for gasoline and R $ 0.03236 for diesel.
Petrobras has confirmed a 3% reduction in the price of diesel and gasoline for refineries from today. President of the National Federation of Trade in Fuels and Lubricants (Fecombustíveis), Paulo Miranda Soares, said the reduction was expected since the price of oil barrel returned to levels previous to the tension between Iran and the USA. He stressed, however, that consumers will have to wait two weeks until distributors manage the inventory.
