Petrobras announced on Wednesday (29) that it had made “ad hoc adjustments” to diesel selling prices for distributors, which is expected to affect the values of fuel sold in four Brazilian states. According to the state-owned company, there were seven reductions of R $ 10 per cubic meter (m³) (R $ 0.010 / liter) and an increase of R $ 8 per m³ (R $ 0.008 / liter). The adjustments take effect immediately. Reductions of R $ 10 / m³ have taken place on S10 diesel prices in Ribeirão Preto (SP), Uberaba and Uberlândia (MG) and Brasilia (DF); and also in the prices of diesel S500 in Ribeirão Preto (SP), Uberaba and Uberlândia (MG). The R $ 8 / m³ increase was made in S10 diesel prices at Senador Canedo (GO), with S500 diesel prices maintained there. “These actions aim to increase the efficiency of operations and the competitiveness of Petrobras in a competitive environment,” the company said in a press release.
