Algoa FM More for petrol, diesel, paraffin and gas in March

The wholesale price of illuminating paraffin, an energy source used by many poor South African households, will rise by 76 cents per litre, while the single maximum national retail price will jump 102 cents per litre.

The petrol price will be hiked-up by the department of energy on Wednesday after a month of glum predictions came true for Mzansi's motorists.

Motorists will be paying 74 cents more per litre of petrol and between 91 and 93 cents more per litre of diesel from Wednesday.

During the period under review (February 1 to February 28), the rand had averaged R13.8038/$, about 1% stronger than the prior period.

However, Clark will have the pressure of a final round to overcome along with a tour veteran trailing closely behind. Strangely, you could double Clark's age and he would still be six years younger than the 56-year-old Singh.

"The main reason for this big increase is mainly the crude oil price".

"Rising global petroleum prices have resulted in South Africans facing substantially higher fuel prices in March".

The hikes will however be implemented in stages, with the first 20 cents coming into effect from the beginning of April, this being a combination of a 15 cent hike in the general fuel levy and 5 cents for the Road Accident Fund. "And obviously, in June, there's the addition of the carbon tax we have to wait and see on a day-to-day basis how those numbers pan out".

This is the second consecutive increase in fuel price this year.
