Petrol price in Brazil
Based on information from the ANP, the price of a liter of gasoline has been falling for three months in the country. In the month of July, the average value dropped from R$ 6.49 to R$ 5.74. Currently, the national price is at 5.40, according to the most recent survey.
Prices have declined significantly due to policies adopted by the Federal Government to reduce the country’s high inflation and Petrobras’ announcements of consecutive reductions in recent months.
The legislation approved by the National Congress at the end of June, set the ICMS (Tax on Circulation of Goods and Services) ceiling between 18% and 17% on fuels and other sectors considered essential.
As a result, the states reduced their tax collection rates, which influenced the decrease in prices at gas stations across the country.
