According to the provisions of the adjustment, the liter of gasoline can be up to R$0.20 more expensive. In the case of diesel, the increase is up to R$0.70.

The announcement of the increase was made on the morning of this Friday (17/6). The state-owned company said it has not increased the price of gasoline for 99 days and diesel for 39. “The average selling price of gasoline from Petrobras to distributors will go from R$3.86 to R$4.06 per liter”. According to Petrobras, the last adjustment took place on March 11. Already diesel, after 39 days without change, “will go from R$ 4.91 to R$ 5.61 per liter.
