At midnight tonight (Wednesday 6th March) the price of petrol in South Africa will increase by 81 cents per litre. As of tomorrow, a litre of petrol will cost motorists in Gauteng R13.08, while those along the coast will be paying R12.73…the highest level ever recorded in SA. Brace yourself for long queues at petrol stations today.
And of course as is customary an increase in the petrol price forces me to dust off the following pic. An all too common occurance in the past year.
And don’t you be giving me lip saying it’s not the fault of the petrol companies and that it’s the government blah blah blah. I don’t care.
Bottom line…we’re getting screwed.
