Ethanol remains more competitive than gasoline in 4 states; see which

Ethanol remained more competitive than gasoline in four states: Goiás, Mato Grosso, Minas Gerais and São Paulo. This is what the weekly survey by the National Agency for Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels (ANP) shows, compiled by AE-Taxas.

The criteria consider that ethanol from sugarcane or corn, due to its lower calorific value, needs to have a price limit of 70% in relation to the petroleum derivative at service stations to be considered more advantageous.

The parity is 64.52% in Goiás; 63.05% in Mato Grosso; 65.12% in Minas Gerais; and 64.91% in São Paulo. In the average of the stations surveyed across the country, biofuel has a parity of 65.94% with gasoline (therefore more favorable).
