April started with the list of progress that users and users will have to face already includes an increase in natural gas, subway and fuel rates, which began to be used in the last days of March.

But the main cause is the jump in the price of other people two factors that determine the value of fuel: Brent raw and the dollar. The price of the dollar was $ 38 at the beginning of February and USD 64.60 for the barrel of crude oil. At the end of March, the dollar went to $ 45 and reached raw 68 USD.
