The average price of Petrobras’ gasoline for distributors rose 12% (or R $ 0.14 per liter), starting to cost R $ 1.26 per liter. The readjustment went into effect on Thursday (21) and was the third in May. In the year, 16 readjustments for gasoline and 12 for diesel were already promoted, with 12 reductions for gasoline and eleven for diesel. As of May, the increases applied by the oil company add up to R $ 0.34 per liter, following the recovery of prices in the foreign market. The company clarified that the successive reductions practiced up to last month totaled R $ 1 per liter, reflecting the falls in quotations in the international market. The value of diesel, which had been raised on Tuesday (12), by 8%, has not changed. In 2020, the drop in gasoline prices reached 34.2% and, in diesel, 39.7%.
