The impact of the truck drivers strike is being felt worse in some industries than others.

Higher international crude oil prices have put paid to any hopes that South Africa might enjoy a decrease in the price of fuel in August - in fact it’s going up, but not by much.

The energy department has announced that the price of petrol will increase by two percent, or 22 cents a litre, from next Wednesday.

The new price of 95 grade petrol will be R11.04 a litre in the Gauteng region, up from R10.82 in July. The wholesale diesel price increases by 1.45 percent to R10.26
