Petrol price on the increase for August

The Automobile Association (AA) have announced that according to the unaudited month-end fuel price data, petrol will increase by 12 cents to the litre in August while diesel will drop by 16 cents to the litre. Illuminating paraffin will also be down by eight cents a litre.

This is due to a steady trend of upward pricing on international oil since the beginning of June.

Diesel prices have slowly risen while petrol remained steady while the currency remains volatile and announcements of a possible rating drop linger.

The forcasted fuel prices are :


  • Petrol R15.93
  • Diesel R14.30


  • Petrol R15.29
  • Diesel R13.76
