Fuel consumption registered the first year-on-year growth since the beginning of the pandemic, with gasoline increasing by 3,46% and diesel by 2,71%, the National Entity for the Energy Sector (ENSE) announced this Friday. ).

“Pela primeira vez desde que foi declarada a crise pandémica mundial, as introduções ao consumo [registos efetuados, para efeitos fiscais, pelos comercializadores grossistas de combustível] mensais em Portugal de gasóleo e gasolina rodoviária cresceram do ponto de vista homólogo face ao mesmo período de 2019”, refere a ENSE em comunicado.

A análise da informação disponível sobre a informação mensal, refere a mesma entidade, indica ser “percetível o ritmo de recuperação sustentado nos níveis de introduções ao consumo destes dois produtos” que mostram “alguma evolução positiva na trajetória de retoma económica”.

O gasóleo (excluindo jet) registou em setembro uma subida de 8.856 toneladas (+2,71%) face ao mesmo mês de 2019, para um total de 403.481 toneladas.

Gasoline saw a year-on-year increase of 2.866 tonnes (+ 3,46%) to a total of 85.807 tonnes.

Apesar do ritmo de recuperação, a ENSE assinala que “continua a ser objetivo e factual que esta recuperação económica mantém um ritmo lento”, havendo setores que permanece particularmente afetados, “como é o caso da aviação, bem visível nas introduções ao consumo de JET [utilizado pelos aviões] registadas em Portugal durante o mês de setembro de 2020 face ao verificado no mês homólogo de 2019”.

No Jet, a evolução do consumo continua em terreno negativo, tendo-se registado em setembro deste ano um recuo de 103.390 toneladas (-64,47%) face às 160.362 toneladas observadas em setembro de 2019.
