The Energy Department has announced that the petrol price will rise by 23-cents a litre next week.
Diesel users will have to cough up even more with its price shooting up by 36-cents a litre.
It is the fourth month in a row that hard-pressed consumers have to deal with steep fuel price hikes.
The department says while global oil prices went down recently, the Rand weakened, prompting the steep hike.
