The average price of gasoline in pumps ended the week falling after rising for the fifth straight week, according to data released on Friday by National Petroleum, the Natural Gas and Biofuels Agency (ANP).
According to the weekly survey, the average value per liter changed from R $ 4,566 to R $ 4,558 – a decrease of 0.18%. That year, the cumulative increase in gasoline prices was 4.9%.
From January to April, inflation was 2.09% in the same period, given the National Wide Consumer Price Index (IPCA).
Gasoline values reported by weekly surveys represent the average calculated by ANP with data collected at the station, and therefore prices can vary according to region.
While diesel finished this week rose 0.22%, from R $ 3,644 per liter to R $ 3,652. In that year, the average value of fuel piled up 5.8%. Like gasoline, the value is the average calculated by ANP with the data collected at the station.
