ASAE received 400 complaints about fuel prices – Atualidade

“We will keep a close eye on the market as in everything else”, and it is still being evaluated whether ASAE will return to the “field” to monitor the evolution of fuel prices, said Pedro Portugal Gaspar, in an interview with Antena 1 and Jornal de Negócios.

After mentioning that these “400 complaints are being analyzed”, the ASAE official revealed that, from the two price monitoring actions carried out in the space of eight days at 71 gas stations in the country, there were “some fluctuations” in prices. .

In terms of foodstuffs, the inspector general said that ASAE has been monitoring the impact of inflation on prices, considering that, although increases of 20 and 30% have been detected, they may not constitute speculation.

“In this matter, margins of 20 or 30% do not seem to me that they will meet requirements considered to be speculative practice, taking into account that, in fact, there are also, upstream in the chain, several elements of price increase that can justify this same oscillation”, he said.

At the beginning of the month, ASAE announced that it had detected only one situation of alleged non-compliance in the application of the reduction of the Tax on Petroleum Products (ISP) at the gas stations it monitored.

This monitoring, at a national level, of fuel stations, aimed to verify the implementation of the new measure to reduce fuel prices, resulting from the decrease in the ISP.

This action “was assumed to verify the fluctuation of prices per liter compared to previous periods, in particular, evaluating the impact of the reduction of the ISP on the final price to the consumer”, explained the authority.
