JOHANNESBURG – There’s just 11 days to go before government’s R1.50 fuel tax relief ends.
Finance Minister Enoch Godongwana announced last month that the general fuel levy would be temporarily cut to cushion fuel price increases.
Prices skyrocketed since the start of the year, driven largely by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which caused a surge in global oil prices.
With further hikes expected next month, a litre of petrol in Gauteng is fast approaching R25 a litre.
Civil action group OUTA says an extension of the relief is necessary.
