Breathing time for motorists seems to be over as fuel price set to go up once again.

The Department of Energy announced that the petrol price will increase R1.72 a litre while diesel is set to go up by R1.73 and illuminating paraffin by R2.14.

These prices are to be effective from Wednesday.

The department says there was a steep decline in fuel price during the first few months of lockdown but with the recent surge in international oil price due to the increase in global economic activity, fuel will cost more in the pumps.

This is also said to be as a result of high demand of the fuel compared to during the time of lockdown.
