RIO DE JANEIRO Aug 24 (Reuters) - Brazil's state-led oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA is making a profit on the sale of imported gasoline in the Brazilian market in the wake of the recent decline in world oil and fuel prices, a Petrobras source told Reuters on Monday.

The wholesale price of gasoline at the refinery gates of Petrobras' Brazilian refineries is now 4 percent higher than the international price and diesel refined at home is 7 percent more expensive than imports, the source said.
