South Africans should brace themselves for another fuel hike.

In recent months, South Africans have been crushed by consistent increases in fuel prices. Already prices shot up at the beginning of the month, with South Africans paying up to 26 cents more per litre of both petrol and diesel. On Monday, the Automobile Association informed the public that fuel prices will rise yet again. South Africans should expect prices to raise “19 cents a litre for petrol, 13 cents for diesel, and 22 cents for illuminating paraffin.”
