AbriLivre director, Rodrigo Zingales, stated that the distribution of fuel in Brazil is in the hands of three companies
A Brazilian Association of Independent and Free Fuel Resellers questions the opinion of the Cade on the drop in the sector’s concentration in the last five years. The director of AbriLivre, Rodrigo Zingales, points out that the rise in prices helps explain the scenario. “THE Petrobras decreased her price at the refinery. The distributor paid a lower price for gasoline, but instead of passing it on to the post and he, in turn, manages to pass on the price decrease to consumers, she took part of the price reduction. ”
The market is in the hands of three companies. “Today, in Brazil, according to data from the ANP, which have 150 distributors authorized to operate in Brazil. What happens is that the big slice of this market is in the hands of only three distributors: BR, Raízen and Ipiranga. ” AbriLivre questions the opinions of the National Petroleum Agency that would support the assessment of the Administrative Council for Economic Defense (Cade) due to the lower concentration of the national fuel market.
