According to information from the ANP (National Petroleum Agency), during the month of July, there was a decrease of 17.4% in the average price of gasoline. The reason is the reduction in the collection of ICMS (Imposto sobre Circulação de Mercadorias e Serviços), a state tax that is applied on the product. Faced with this, drivers are already celebrating the improvement in prices.

Low gasoline of R$ 6 leaves drivers celebrating

During the month of June, the Chamber of Deputies approved a project that limits the ICMS tax rate on fuels, electricity, natural gas, communications and public transport. As it is a state tax, it is the responsibility of local governments to establish the weight of the charge, which is reflected in the final price of gasoline and other products.

In the text authorized by the Chamber, there was a ban on charging more than 17% or 18%, depending on the location. Thus, the states began to disclose the tax reduction, which consequently made the liter of fuel cheaper. In addition, federal taxes (PIS/Cofins) were zeroed by the end of 2022.

According to Petrobras, the final value of gasoline is formed by the sum of Distribution and Resale, Anhydrous Ethanol Cost, State Tax, Federal Taxes and Petrobras’ share. Given this, any change made in taxes impacts the product. Petrobras also announced a decrease of R$ 0.20 per liter of gasoline for distributors. And so, it went from R$4.06 to R$3.86.
