SAO PAULO, Jan 5 (Reuters) - Brazilian state-controlled oil company Petróleo Brasileiro SA increased diesel prices at refineries by 6.1 percent on average with immediate effect.
According to a statement on Thursday, the decision reflects higher oil prices in global markets as well as a stronger real currency. Petrobras, as the company is known, will continue revising fuel prices at least once every 30 days, the statement said. (Reporting by Bruno Federowski; Editing by Chris Reese)
