Johannesburg - South Africa's petrol price will rise by 74 cents a litre from Wednesday, while the wholesale price of diesel will increase by up to 93 cents, the energy department announced on Monday.
This means that motorists in Gauteng will now pay R14.60 a litre for 93 Unleaded petrol and R14.82 for 95 Unleaded, while the coastal price for 95 rises to R14.23.
The wholesale price of 0.05 ppm diesel will increase to R14.05 inland and R13.56 at the coast, although as the diesel price is not regulated, those prices exclude the service station margins.
