South Africans should brace themselves for further increases in April.

This is according to the Automobile Association (AA) which was commenting on unaudited mid-month fuel price data released by the Central Energy Fund.

The projected basic fuel price increase is being billed as 98 cents for petrol, 70 cents for diesel and 63 cents for illuminating paraffin.

The AA says the increased fuel taxes also become applicable in April which will add 20 cents a litre to the increase.
