UASA Media Release: 6 February 2024

Statement by Abigail Moyo, spokesperson of the trade union UASA:

From midnight motorists will have to dig deeper and adjust on their fuel spending after three months of consecutive fuel price reductions.

The Department of Mineral Resources and Energy released its final numbers this morning, saying that petrol will increase 75c/L and diesel between 70c/L and 73c/L.

UASA is deeply concerned that this may be the beginning of another fuel price increase rollercoaster as the price hikes have a harsh impact on workers’ household expenses.

Ahead of notable national economic events, including Thursday’s State of the Nation Address, the National Budget Speech and the upcoming general elections, UASA urges the government to consider how the cost of living hinders growth and development.

UASA encourages its members and fellow South Africans to budget carefully according to the new fuel prices and adopt efficient ways to use their fuel carefully.
