Petrol price to increase again

2013-03-27 15:37

The price of petrol (95ULP) will increase by 10c a litre at the coast and 12c a litre in Gauteng, with effect from midnight on Tuesday.

The wholesale price of diesel with a sulphur content of 0.05% will rise by seven and nine cents a litre respectively, and that of diesel with a sulphur content of 0.005% by 8c and 10c a litre, the energy department said in a statement today.

The wholesale price of illuminating paraffin would increase by 30c a litre at the coast and 26c in Gauteng.

During the period under review, the average international product prices of petrol, diesel, and illuminating paraffin decreased, but the average rand/US dollar exchange rate weakened.

Also taken into account were the 23c-a-litre increase in the fuel and Road Accident Fund levies, which Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan announced in his Budget in February, the department said.
