Brazilian Economy Minister Paulo Guedes said he\u2019ll clear up any confusion from President Jair Bolsonaro\u2019s decision to halt a planned fuel-price hike by Petroleo Brasileiro SA. When asked about Bolsonaro\u2019s meddling in state-controlled Petrobras\u2019 pricing policy this week, Guedes said he\u2019d get more information when he returns home from Washington, where he\u2019s been attending the spring meetings of the International Monetary Fund. Petrobras shares plunged more than 8 percent on Friday after Bolsonaro called the energy producer\u2019s Chief Executive Officer Roberto Castello Branco and ordered him to cancel a planned increase in diesel prices.

A conversation fixes everything.\u201d Bolsonaro\u2019s hastily-made decision sent shockwaves across Brazilian markets as it revived fears of the interventionist policies by previous Brazilian governments that analysts blame for fueling inflation and hurting the economy in recent years. A massive trucker strike hit the country a year ago when diesel prices were finally allowed to go up. Since then, the government temporarily subsidized diesel, and Petrobras has started adjusting its prices more sparingly. Late on Friday, Bolsonaro\u2019s spokesman said the president understands that Petrobras is a publicly-held company subject to market rules, and that it shouldn\u2019t be subject to political interference. Bolsonaro, elected in 2018 on a pro-business platform after years of leftist governments, plans to meet again with the Petrobras CEO and some of his ministers on Tuesday to discuss the situation with truck drivers.
