This is true information, or this is a effect of betrayal of images?
However, the various media that published the photograph, with the information that was circulating on social networks, ended up correct these news. After all, the fuel pump at Beloura, in Sintra, was selling gasoline at € 1.80 a liter, but it was normal price of an additive fuel.
The image showed 1.80 euros as single price, but it was also the only type of fuel which the station was marketing, at the normal and non-inflated price. The other types of fuel were exhausted, which is why the table only showed that higher price. That is, the information that circulated on social networks throughout the day of yesterday was completely false.
Unlike the mass media that erred and corrected the information promptly, the fact is that the page "Bombeiros24" continues to spread the false information, uncorrected. Like thousands of publications on social networks.
