Petrol price likely to increase

Motorists could see another price hike in petrol and diesel next month.

That’s according to the Central Energy Fund.

It says the price of petrol is likely to increase by between 76 and 80 cents a litre and diesel could cost between 46 and 47 cents a litre more.

Economist Hugo Pienaar believes a weaker rand, as a result of the recent unrest may have played a role in the increase.
