It will likely only effect petrol with a 56 cent a litre increase. Diesel may decrease by 5 cents, he says.

People will probably still go on planned holiday trips, he says, and religious trips such as the religious pilgrimage to Moria outside Polokwane in Limpopo is unlikely to be affected.

The fuel increase impact will be felt in the long run in all sectors.
