Petrol Price Hike Wednesday 4th August

Due to the Rand taking a knock from the looting and murders of July, as well as the Dollar doing a bit better at the time, SA drivers are now facing a 91 Cents increase in petrol price. 

Diesel is also going up by around 55 Cents and Paraffin by 50 Cents.

There is a little light on the horizon, as it seems that oversupply and other factors may drive the cost down a little next month but consumers should not expect a massive drop, rather they can expect a smaller decrease in price (as long as the Rand continues to recover vs the US Dollar).

The pending increase will kick in on Wednesday 4th August 2021.
