The petrol price will rise by between 25 and 29 cents this week, the Energy Department announced on Monday.

A litre of 93 (ULP and LRP) will rise by 25 cents, while a litre of 95 (ULP and LRP) will rise by 29 cents.

Both grades of diesel (0.05% sulphur) and 0.005% sulphur will increase by 42 cents a litre, while the price of illuminating paraffin (wholesale) will go up by 39 cents a litre.

The prices will be effective on Wednesday.

The cost of illuminating paraffin (SMNRP) will increase by 52 cents, while the maximum retail price of LPGas will go up by 39 cents.

The department said the average international product prices of petrol, diesel and illuminating paraffin increased during the period under review.

In September, the price of petrol rose by 67 cents. – SAnews.gov.za
