These price hikes are a result of several factors.

International product prices for petrol, diesel, and illuminating paraffin have risen during the review period.

Additionally, the Rand weakened against the US Dollar, leading to higher Basic Fuel Prices for petrol, diesel, and illuminating paraffin, with increases of 29.60 c/l, 31.33 c/l, and 31.58 c/l, respectively.
