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.

Petrol 93 is expected to increase by 37 cents a litre and unleaded 95 by 37 cents a litre, setting the price of both grades at R23.01 and R23.34 per litre, respectively.
The wholesale price of diesel is expected to decrease by between 48c/l and 74c/l, while the cost of illuminating paraffin is expected to come down by around 33c/l.

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.
