Fuel prices rise at midnight

By Mikhaila Crowie

Fuel stations are expected to become busy again this afternoon with the price of 95-octane petrol going up by 31c a litre from midnight.

The wholesale price of diesel goes up by just under 40c.

The hikes are largely due to the implementation of two taxes announced by Finance Minister Trevor Manuel in his budget speech in February.

Fuel levies and the Road Accident Fund levy have been increased. But the wholesale price of paraffin will decrease by five-cents a litre.
