Petrol price expected to increase


On Wednesday, the petrol price is expected to increase while the price of diesel will cost 21 cents less.

The Energy Department said there would be an increase in both grades of petrol by 1 cent per litre.

However, paraffin users will be given a relief of 26 cents per litre.

International prices of all refined petroleum products went down despite stronger oil prices and a weaker rand exchange rate in August.

Moreover, a 5 cents per litre increase in the retail margin of petrol will accommodate increase of pay for petrol station staff.
