Under the current regulations, the energy and carbon dioxide tax on gasoline would have amounted to a total of SEK 7.02 in 2024. The tax is reduced from this level by SEK 1.31. This means, given that no indexing will apply, that the total tax will be SEK 0.75 lower (incl. VAT) compared to the 2023 level. In 2025, the tax on gasoline will be further reduced from the adjusted level by SEK 0.75 (including VAT).
The tax on diesel is lowered towards the EU's minimum tax level in 2024. This entails a reduction of approx. SEK 0.43 per litre (incl. VAT) compared to the level that would have applied in 2024 under the current regulations, but a slight increase compared to the 2023 level.
In addition to the proposal for reduced tax on gasoline and diesel, the government is also implementing measures to support the agricultural sector. The government proposes that the extended tax reduction for so-called agricultural diesel should also apply in 2024.
The changes are proposed to enter into force on 1 January 2024 and 1 January 2025, respectively.
