Starting today, Thursday (1st)you vehicle supply costs it’s from food preparation will increase. O Tax on Circulation of Goods and Services (ICMS), a state tax, will be increased for gasoline, diesel and cooking gas. This increase is the result of the decision by several states to adjust the ICMS for several products, aiming to compensate for revenue losses.
In most cases, general tax rates were increased from 18% to 20%. However, as fuels follow a different taxation system, the adjustments will be in fixed amounts in cents. This change was approved in October by the National Council for Financial Policy (Confaz), which brings together the state finance secretaries. This is the first adjustment to the ICMS since the change in the charging model sanctioned by former president Jair Bolsonaro in March 2022.
Previously, ICMS was calculated as a percentage of the total price, defined by each federation unit. Now, the tax is charged based on a fixed amount per liter, in the case of gasoline or diesel, or per kilogram, in the case of cooking gas.
Considering the calculation of the average price made by the National Petroleum, Gas and Biofuels Agency (ANP), the cost per liter of gasoline will reach an average of R$ 5.71. About the diesel, the average price per liter will increase to around R$5.95 (conventional diesel) and will exceed R$6 for S-10 diesel, which has a lower sulfur content.
Starting this Thursday, both gasoline and diesel will be sold at higher prices. With an increase of R$0.15 in the case of gasoline and approximately R$0.12 for diesel, the average values per liter will reach, respectively, R$5.71 and R$5.95, according to research from prices carried out by ANP. In the case of Diesel S-10, the average price is expected to exceed R$6.00 per liter. As for cooking gas, the average price of a 13-kilo cylinder will increase from approximately R$100.98 to R$103.60.
