Petrol Price Going Up Again

Petrol Price Going Up This Week

It is hard not to get depressed when you find out that petrol will be going up for the 5th time this year as it sours to a new record high locally.

Petrol will be going up by 26 cents on Wednesday 4th July 2018. This follows hot on the heels of last month’s 82 cent increase.

The reason being touted for the increase is the way the Rand has been weakening against the US Dollar (down from R12.51 to around R13.29).

The coming increase will just add to the increasing cost of living [see the recent issue of Debtfree Magazine about coping with the increasing cost of living] that is placing consumers under increasing pressure to make ends meet.
