UASA Media Release: 02 May 2023
Statement by Abigail Moyo, spokesperson of the trade union UASA:
The petrol price increase coming into effect at midnight will push the price over the R23/l mark, making it more expensive for workers to get to work and back with petrol-pumped vehicles while creating a knock-on effect on the price of food and other essential items.
The price drop in diesel and illuminating paraffin will put a spring in the step of consumers who utilise these fuels for personal and business use as we approach the cold season when keeping warm can mean survival.
UASA encourages workers to keep their budgets in check and be moneywise.
