The protests by truck drivers stem from Petrobras' price policy, which came into force in July and has since raised the value of diesel in the country. With the shutdown, the supply of gas stations, as well as the sectors of food, health, transportation, among others, were affected. The price of gasoline today varies between R $ 2.10 and R $ 10 at gas stations in the country. The category asks for the removal of the tax burden for diesel and for exemption from the Cide (Contribution for Intervention in the Economic Domain) so that there is a reduction in the price. So far, there has been no agreement with the government.
