The prices disclosed represent an average calculated by the ANP from data collected at stations in various cities across the country. The value, therefore, may vary by region.
This week's result represents the fifth high followed by the price of gasoline at gas stations and the sixth of diesel. Already ethanol had its third consecutive weekly increase.
Fuel prices at gas stations
Evolution of the value per liter, in the national average
The highs occur after Petrobras raised diesel and gasoline values three times over the previous month.
The company last readjusted gasoline on September 27, with a surge following turmoil in the oil market following an attack on Saudi Arabian production facilities in the middle of last month. Diesel has not changed since September 19.
The pass-through of refinery price adjustments to final consumers at gas stations depends on several factors, such as taxes, distribution and resale margins, and biofuel blending.
Consumption of distributors' stocks also influences the speed with which transfers occur to the stations.
The state's quotations in refineries are based on import parity, formed by international prices plus the costs that importers would have, such as transport and port taxes, for example, and a risk-covering margin.
