UASA Media Release:  28 February 2023                                         

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

Workers will be reviewing their budgets again as from tomorrow when the fuel price increase, as announced by the Department of Mineral Resources and Energy yesterday, becomes effective.

Unleaded 95 and 93 petrol will cost R1.27 a litre more, and diesel will go up by between 30c and 32c per litre. Illuminating paraffin will increase by 13c a litre and the maximum retail price for LP gas will be R5.22 a kilogram more.

The knock-on effect of the higher fuel price will put transporters and commuters under extra pressure. The consumer will ultimately pay increased prices for transported goods and for public transport as goods and service providers will make sure their businesses stay afloat. Car owners and commuters will have to pull their belts tight against the onslaught of the increases.
