Petrol prices to increase
Fuel price has increased as of from today, an increase of between 11 and 15 cents per litre for both 93 and 95 octanes.
Petrol increased by R1, 72 per litre in July, diesel and paraffin is expected to increase. According to eNCA the Energy department said the rand/ dollar exchange rate and higher intentions oil prices are behind the hikes.
International crude oils prices have continued to increase and sadly, rand has not strengthened enough to barrier consumers from the hike.
Lockdown restrictions have been eased, demand for petroleum products is returning and prices will rise again.
