O The price of gasoline, diesel and cooking gas should be, on average, more expensive in Belo Horizonte and the region starting this Thursday (1st/02). The increase was already foreseen, due to the adjustment of the Tax on the Circulation of Goods and Services (ICMS), agreed between the States.

The tax will increase by R$0.15 per liter of gasoline, R$0.12 per liter of diesel and R$0.16 per kilogram of gas cylinders. The fuel chain may or may not pass on the full value to the consumer. Considering the average price of each one in the last week, recorded by the National Agency of Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels (ANP), and a total pass-through of the increases, the increase in Belo Horizonte would be as follows:

  • Gasoline: from R$5.25 to R$5.40;
  • diesel: from R$5.60 to R$5.72;
  • diesel S10: from R$5.84 to R$5.96;
  • cooking gas (13 kg): from R$ 101.40 to R$ 103.48

In practice, the increase may be higher. The commercial director of Valêncio Consultoria Combustíveis, Murilo Genari Barco, states that, on Thursday morning, some distributors began to increase the price of gasoline and diesel by around R$0.05 more than expected.

The increase was approved in October 2023 by the National Council for Finance Policy (Confaz), a body that brings together state finance secretaries. It is the first adjustment to the ICMS since the model was changed, in March 2022. Previously, it was charged according to a percentage of the total price defined by each State. Now, the tax takes into account a fixed value per liter or kilo.
