During that period, oil rose 13%, following the rising trend of global commodities; and the Real appreciated around 4% against the Dollar, as a result, the adjustment will be 7% in R$/m³”, Petrobras informed. The increase in natural gas was announced on the same day the state-owned company increased diesel and gasoline prices. It is the 1st increase in fuels under General Silva e Luna's management. In a statement to the market, Petrobras said that "the final price of natural gas to the consumer is not only determined by the company's sales price, but also by the distributors' margins ( and, in the case of CNG, resale stations) and federal and state taxes.
