Overview

Argus has the most comprehensive coverage of any price reporting agency (PRA) in Latin America, giving exporters and importers more visibility and transparency into the region. Combining our international expertise with our local presence, Argus produces exclusive prices and market intelligence, being the only PRA to publish gasoline and diesel delivered prices in Brazil based on actual transactions. 

The Argus Brazil Motor Fuels report offers, in addition to gasoline and diesel, daily coverage of ethanol, biodiesel, decarbonization credits (Cbios) and renewable feedstocks, all in Portuguese. It also brings price indicators, news, market analysis and supply and demand data. In addition, the report features the industry leading daily price of Paulínia multimodal hydrated ethanol, obtained from actual deals done, without freight standardization, taking into account all modes of transport and origins. This report is published daily in Portuguese, with an English-language supplement published every Monday. 

Brazil is one of the world’s leading importers of diesel. Argus prices reflect the constant changes in global trade dynamics and include both Russian and non-Russian products, which are monitored exclusively by Argus.
