The President of the Senate, Rodrigo Pacheco (PSD-MG), criticized this Friday (11) the increase in fuel prices, announced yesterday by Petrobras, and demanded the collaboration of the State, the Federal Government and the Governors in looking for solutions.. for the problem. “It is somehow unacceptable that the price of fuel is at this level. I invoke here everyone’s understanding and collaboration. From federal to state governments, including Petrobras. Everyone must contribute to containing the rise in prices, which is very detrimental to the national economy,” said the senator. Yesterday, Congress approved the bill that modifies the ICMS billing formula on fuels produced in Brazil, as well as the proposal that creates the gasoline voucher and modifies the pricing policy of Petrobras.
