Petrol to increase by 84 c/l
The price of diesel will increase by 78,2 c/l, while illuminating paraffin will jump by 75 c/l.
JOHANNESBURG - The price of petrol will increase by 84 cents per litre (c/l) from next week Wednesday, the Department of Minerals and Energy revealed on Friday.
The price of diesel will increase by 78 c/l, while illuminating paraffin will jump by 75 c/l.
The hike has largely been attributed to the weaker rand.
The average exchange rate between the United States (US) dollar and the rand was R10,05 this month, compared to R9,29 during the previous period.
The retail price of petrol in Gauteng will reach R13,00 for unleaded 93, while 95 will rise to R13,23.
Motorists at the coast will pay R12,80 and R12,86 respectively.
