Commenting on unaudited mid-month fuel price data released by the Central Energy Fund South Africa’s Automobile Association warned consumers to expect “extremely high” fuel price increases at the end of March, going into April. “As things stand, petrol is set for a 90 cents-a-litre rise, diesel for an increase of 66 cents, and illuminating paraffin an increase of 62 cents,” the AA said, explaining that steepening climbs in international petroleum prices are being worsened by a dipping rand/US dollar exchange rate. The country is also set to see fuel levy increases as well as increases to the General Fuel and Road Accident Fund levies as well as a one cent increase to Carbon Tax.
