Petrol price to increase – again….salaries???


Consumers are still coming to terms with the impact of the last petrol price increases, but it seems the pain is not over yet.

Economists have warned of a possible increase on August 7 that will see consumers fork out between 25 and 30 cents a litre extra.

In July motorists had to pay an extra 84 cents a litre for fuel and 78 cents a litre for diesel.

The impact is that taxi and food prices will increase but the salaries of those working will remain the same. Are we turning into another Zimbabwe or its just things getting tuff. I know it will certainly be difficult for that old magogo who wakes up early in the morning to ride the bus to get to work
