Barrel price and exchange rate fluctuation drive the rise
According to the economist and professor of economics and public finance at Udesc, Ivonetti Ramos, there are two factors that drive the rise in fuel prices: the price of a barrel of oil and the variation in the exchange rate.
— In the case of the barrel, it has been under pressure from demand, due to the resumption of economies. This year alone, the increase was 37%, which is very significant. In relation to the exchange rate, there was a very significant oscillation in recent months, with the restrictive monetary policy and the increase in the basic interest rate – he points out.
She explains that, because of these factors, it is likely that there will be other price increases in the coming months, which may also directly impact the price of other products.
— This increase in derivatives impacts the costs of other products. In addition to gasoline, there is an increase in diesel, which impacts freight costs, and cooking gas. Added, it all affects prices too much – emphasizes.
Therefore, the economist says that, with the rise, the best way is to find ways to save to avoid indebtedness:
— It is important to keep an eye on the research and see what can be replaced, adopting the carpool system. The important thing is not to go into debt.
