The latest petrol price adjustments for November 2017 has been released by the department of energy.
These figures show a slight increase for petrol and a greater increase for diesel.
The department cites that 93 and 95 grades of petrol will be going up by 4 cents per litre. The wholesale price of 0.05% and 0.005% diesel will however be going up by 23 and 27 cents, respectively.
According to BusinessTech, the department adds that the price of illuminating paraffin will go up by 21 cents.
This fuel hike is the consequence of what the Automobile Association terms “across-the-board losses from the exchange rate”. In other words, the international prices of diesel are increasing while the weak rand slipped against the dollar meaning that all grades of fuel will be more expensive in November.
Motorists can expect this hike to kick in on Wednesday, 1 November 2017.
