The increased price of Petrol and Diesel has been driven by the international price hikes. However, the Various Government taxes such as Duty, Nora Levy etc have added over 10 cent per litre in the past three years and this went unnoticed because the international price had fallen. The International price has not reached the level of September 2018 YET however the pumps prices have exceeded those of September 2018.
This is having and will have furtehr affect upon the national economy as all goods delivered are the result of mainly diesel transport vehicles . A 17% hike in fuel costs will see ALL goods increase in price. Along with this there is an additional hike in Carbon taxes about to be introduced!
There may be a winter of unease ahead
