The price of fuel is expected to increase again from Wednesday.
According to a statement issued by the Department of Energy, the price of petrol will go up by 5 cents a litre.
Diesel will see the biggest increase of 45 cents while Paraffin will cost 39 cents more.
The department says the
main contributors to the latest increase is the higher international oil price.
It says the recent appreciation in the local currency resulted in lower increases.
Absa economist Miyelani Maluleke says the fuel price adjustments will not make a significant impact on the general prices in the economy: "This does not make a huge difference, we still see headline CPI averaging 3% this year, at this stage it doesn't raise concerns.
It's an unwelcome development the econ is only starting to recover gradually.
The impact will be benign.""https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/s526x296/117148755_3407840445934982_5437068653672513732_n.jpg?_nc_cat=106&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=QTZWcxojQ9kAX8DGE4N&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&_nc_tp=7&oh=9540b4cb9acb39444514c9cb628fa85b&oe=5F4F145E"
