Johannesburg - The price of diesel is looking set to increase by around 25 cents a litre from the beginning of September, while 95 Unleaded petrol is likely to increase by 10 cents a litre, but those filling up with 93 Unleaded could actually pay 3 cents less.
This is what the Automobile Association is predicting, based on unaudited month-end data released by the Central Energy Fund.
Those price movements would see the price of 93 Unleaded dropping to R15.69, while 95 would rise to R16.02 inland, and R15.38 at the coast.
The aforementioned increases are purely as a result of a weaker rand and had the local currency stood better ground during the month of August, motorists would have been looking forward to significant decreases:
"The average landed price of fuel dropped across the board during August,” the AA said.
