Fuel prices are largely determined by the oil price, as well as the rand as oil is priced in dollars.
While the brent oil price had fallen to around $80 a barrel, it’s currently trading closer to $85.
The rand has taken a knock in recent weeks and months.
In recent days it has been steadying, getting a major lift following a bigger-than-expected rate hike last week Thursday.
At the time of publishing the rand/dollar exchange rate is R17.87/$.
