South Africa Motorists Expect hardship in the face of Fuel hike

South African motorists are expected to face another time of hardship when fuel prices increase on Wednesday.

According to reports on Sunday, the price of petrol will go up 54c a litre as announced by the South African department of energy.

The increase is however attributed to domestic and international factors.

The price of diesel with 0.05% sulphur will increase by 1c a litre. Paraffin will go up by 3c a litre (wholesale price) with the national retail price rising by 4c a litre.

In early April, the inland petrol price went up R1.34 a litre for 93 octane unleaded, and R1.31 for 95 unleaded. At the coast, 93 unleaded went up by R1.29 and 95 unleaded by R1.26. Diesel also went up 76c per litre at the coast and 81c inland.

Meanwhile, Motorists have taken to social media after the latest price announcement, with some contemplating other modes of transportation.
