Petrol price to increase next week
28 January 2011
Motorists must expect another petrol hike next week.
The Energy Department has confirmed that the price of all grades of petrol will rise by 26-cents a litre next week.
Diesel will cost between 30- and 32-cents more, the price of illuminating paraffin will go up by up to 42-cents and LP gas’ price will go up by 41-cent.
This hike is reported to be the second highest hike in row.
This hike next week has been caused by the weakened Rand against the dollar in the past month.
