Cape Town - The price of fuel could increase again at the end of August, putting further strain on transport companies and local motorists.

Stronger international fuel prices and a gradually weakening Rand could signal an increase in the price of all fuel types at the end of August, according to the Automobile Association.

The association says: "The Rand has weakened an average of 20 cents against the US dollar since the start of August. Meanwhile, international fuel product prices have remained on the higher plateau they reached towards the end of July. This means all fuel types are likely to experience substantial price increases at month end."

The AA’s fuel outlook prediction is that petrol is expected to climb by a hefty 63 cents a litre, diesel by 57 cents and illuminating paraffin by 58 cents.
