Petrol Price increase at midnight!


Hey boys and girls- fresh on the heels of the last increase comes yet another rise in the price of petrol.

You can expect to be paying 14 cents a litre more for petrol, while diesel prices will rise by about 4 percent on 5th May, the government said on Friday.

The department of energy said in a statement the pump price for 95 grade petrol will rise to 8.72 rand a litre in the main inland commercial region. The wholesale diesel price will be 7.81 rand a litre in the same province, that includes Johannesburg and capital Pretoria.

Apparently all of the increases are due to the fact that South Africa is a net importer of oil and thus adjusts its fuel price each month to account for changes in the rand exchange rate, the international oil price and government levies.


Im a guy with a very particular view of life... im not quite sure what that view is just yet, but when I find out I'll be sure to let you know...

  1. It does suck terribly… imagine how those guys who bought Chevy Lumina SS's are feeling right now. Those things do like 50 litres per 100kms *ouch*
