Petrol price up by 44c for July

JUNE 26, 2015

The Department of Energy announced on Friday that the price of petrol will increase by between 41 cents and 44 cents per litre for July, with Diesel and illuminating paraffin rising by four and eight cents respectively.

A weakening rand and increase in international oil prices has been attributed to the latest price hike. A short while ago, the rand was trading at R12.21 against the US dollar with Brent Crude Oil being priced at $62.66 a barrel.
