Johannesburg – The petrol price will increase on Wednesday but motorists have been spared larger fuel price increases following the government’s move to cut the fuel levy.
Both grades of 93 petrol will go up by 28 cents a litre.
Customers at the pump will pay 36 cents more for 95 octane petrol.
Diesel users will have to fork out up to R1.68 more. Poor households using paraffin will be hit hard, having to pay R3.55 more for a litre.
The increase in petrol would have been R2 a litre and diesel R3 if there had been no intervention.
