This is how the fuel price has fluctuated in South Africa in 2023
Motoring journalist Sean Parker tracks the fuel price over the past nine months and looks at how it has fluctuated from January to September.
South African motorists were hit by another increase in the fuel price this week, with the Department of Mineral Resources and Energy announced high increases for both grades of petrol and diesel.
Motorists with diesel-powered vehicles were hit with increases of over R2.60 per litre, according to IOL.
THE SEPTEMBER FUEL PRICE HIKE WILL HIT CONSUMERS BADLY
South Africans will feel the knock-on effect of the price of 500ppm diesel at R23.05 and R22.58 and R23.29 for 50ppm diesel as it will increase the price of goods transported by trucks across South Africa.
According to the Automobile Association of South Africa: “Motorists will certainly feel the pinch in terms of higher prices at the pumps but consumers across the board can expect higher prices to all goods and services because of these hikes.”
