From this Thursday (1st), fueling the vehicle and cooking will become more expensive. The Tax on the Circulation of Goods and Services (ICMS), a tax charged by states, will rise for gasoline, diesel and cooking gas.
The increase reflects the decision of several states to readjust the ICMS for products in general to compensate for revenue losses.
In most cases, states raised general rates from 18% to 20%. As fuels follow a different taxation system, the adjustments will be with fixed values in cents.

The increase was approved in October by the National Finance Policy Council (Confaz), a body that brings together state finance secretaries. This is the first adjustment to the ICMS after the change in the charging model sanctioned by former president Jair Bolsonaro in March 2022.
Previously, ICMS was charged according to a percentage of the total price defined by each federation unit. Now, the tax is charged at a fixed amount per liter, in the case of gasoline or diesel, or per kilogram, in the case of cooking gas.
The rates changed to the following values:
