'Modest fuel price increase' for SA

Johannesburg - Unaudited mid-month fuel price data released by the Central Energy Fund (CEF) reveals a standoff between rising international petroleum prices and a stronger Rand / US dollar exchange rate.

This is according to the Automobile Association (AA), which described the current fuel price outlook as a mixed bag.

"In the first half of February, international petroleum prices increased by the equivalent of ten to twelve cents a litre, while the Rand firmed by about seven cents against the US dollar," the AA said. 
 
"As a result, the current data suggests a very modest fuel price increase of between three and four cents a litre for vehicle fuels, and a drop of around three cents a litre for illuminating paraffin."

The Association said that any sudden spike in oil prices or move in the Rand could change the situation suddenly. "Under the circumstances, it would be speculative to pronounce on what the fuel price picture is likely to be at month end," the AA concluded.
