RIO DE JANEIRO, Feb 16 (Reuters) - Brazilian fuel sales fell to 135 billion liters in 2016, down 4.5 percent compared to the previous year, led by a sharp drop in sales of hydrate ethanol, national oil agency ANP said on Thursday.
Sales of C-Blend gasoline, which is mixed with ethanol, rose 4.6 percent. Sales of diesel and hydrate ethanol fell 5.1 percent and 18.3 percent, respectively. (Reporting by Marta Nogueira; editing by Jason Neely)
