Gasoline price: ANP ranking shows the states with the most expensive gasoline in the country

Ranking released by the ANP shows the states of the federation where the consumer pays more for gasoline

For several reasons, all states in Brazil are suffering strongly from the consecutive increases in the price of gasoline. According to the national gasoline price ranking, published by ANP (National Petroleum Agency), Piauí is the state where the consumer pays more per liter of gasoline

The ranking released by the ANP showed that people from Piauí pay much more than consumers from other states. Piauí is the only state where the average price of a liter of gasoline is above R$8. Today, the liter is traded in the state for R$ 8,13, on average.

Due to Russia's invasion of Ukraine, the price of gasoline rose all over the world. In 2016, Brazil started to apply the Import Parity Price (PPI). Until that moment, the country controlled fuel prices as a way to protect consumer prices from inflation. However, the measure caused great damage to Petrobras' coffers. 

Natural gas has an increase of 19%

The new prices of natural gas came into effect this Sunday, May 1st. A Petrobras announced a 19% increase in the price charged at distributors. The value will not change in the next quarter, where there should be a new readjustment according to the price of oil and the variation of the exchange rate.
