RIO DE JANEIRO Nov 29 (Reuters) - Brazilian state-led oil company Petrobras is importing 80,000 to 90,000 barrels of gasoline a day, an amount likely to rise in December and January, Chief Executive Officer Maria das Gra├žas Foster told reporters Thursday in Rio de Janeiro.

Petrobras' Pasadena refinery in Texas is part of a package of U.S. assets that the company is trying to sell, although it has no timeline for when the plant may be sold, Foster added.
