The Ombudsman asked for lower fuel prices


Miguel Ángel Godoy Servín, an Ombudsman, asked Petrolejos Paraguayos (Petropar) to point out lower fuel prices, taking into account recent oil price data.

According to the document submitted by the State Office, the price of crude oil was as follows: in August, $ 72.28 per barrel; September was booked at US $ 77.18; in October it was $ 79.58 and in early November it was $ 68.47 a barrel. Yesterday, the international price of crude oil was $ 51.51 a barrel, which was the lowest in recent times.

The Ombudsman stated by means of the wool that he wanted to emphasize important things for the consumer's rights, given that Petropar's owner publicly announced that the rise in fuel prices would depend on the international price of crude oil and the dollar.

In Chile yesterday, fuel and LPG prices declined for the fifth consecutive week. This information was confirmed by the Chilean President Sebastián Piñera in his Twitter account. "This is an important relief for all the Chilean pockets," the president said through his social network.

Petropar's owner PatriciaSamudio repeated yesterday the Monumental radio, according to which only by the end of the month will be analyzed the likelihood of reducing the price of standard diesel, fuel whose values ​​are paramount to Paraguay's economy.

In the second step, he explained that if the oil per cubic meter reaches $ 450 and if the dollar falls below $ 6,000, its lower hydrocarbon prices may decline.


The high price of crude oil and the rise in the dollar were the main reasons that forced the rise in prices of fuel marketed in mid-September in all markets in the country.

After the repair, both the US currency and crude oil prices, but especially the second, declined significantly, but the companies selling fuel in the country still keep the prices of their products.

Petropar's former president, Eddie Jaralle, has elements in order for land-based codes to lower fuel prices. "There are two components, the international price of oil and the exchange rate of the dollar, which determine how much fuel prices should be in each market," he said.
