Brazil president's office says will preserve Petrobras' pricing policy

BRASILIA, May 30 (Reuters) - The office of Brazilian President Michel Temer said in a written statement on Wednesday that it was committed to the financial health of Petroleo Brasileiro SA and it would continue to preserve the state-led oil firm’s fuel pricing policies.

A government source told Reuters that Temer may scrap a market-based pricing mechanism that Petrobras has used for the past year and revert to selling all fuel below costs after a trucking strike largely paralyzed the nation the past 10 days. Temer acknowledged in a television interview late Tuesday that he was open to reviewing the pricing policy. (Reporting by Lisandra Paraguassu Writing by Brad Brooks Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
