Petrol prices increase

By Staff Writer
Petrol prices increased today, seeing consumers having to pay over R13 a litre again. The Department of Energy (DoE) said that this increase was based on both national and international trends.

“International factors include the fact that South Africa imports both crude oil and finished products at a price set by the global markets, including shipping costs,” said the DoE.

Motorists can now expect to pay 47 cents more a litre for both leaded and unleaded petrol.

Paraffin will also go up by 42 cents a litre, with Diesel increasing by 49 cents a litre.

The DoE said that the main reason for the fuel price increase is the high crude oil prices which resulted in higher prices (on average) for all the petroleum products in the international markets in May 2015 compared to April 2015.
