Price of petrol to rise again in November

      No Comments on Price of petrol to rise again in November

Some welcome relief for consumers is that the price of petrol will only increase by 4 cents per litre next week‚ the Department of Energy has announced.
The price of diesel will increase by between 23c and 27c a litre‚ while illuminating paraffin will go up by 21c/l. The retail price of LP Gas will increase by 17c/kg.

The department attributed the moderate rise in the petrol price to the rand weakening against the US dollar on average during the period under review – from R13.13 to R13.62 – and a slight increase in the average Brent Crude oil price.

The fuel price increase was cushioned by an over-recovery of about 17c/l owing to a decrease in the average price of petrol during the period.

The petrol price increase will come into effect on Wednesday.
