MOTORISTS are in for a shock and will have to dig a little deeper to pay for fuel from Wednesday.

While mid- and end-month data published by the Central Energy Fund for August pointed to a price cut across the board for fuel, due to a drop in international petroleum prices, the Department of Mineral Resources and Energy on Tuesday announced an increase for petrol prices.

Adjustments to the slate levy and a retail margin increase for petrol mean that motorists will be paying 4 cents more per litre from Wednesday, while diesel prices will be cut by 14 and 15 cents per litre.

Petrol 95: increase of 4 cents per litre;

Petrol 93: increase of 4 cents per litre;

Diesel 0.05%: decrease of 15 cents per litre;

Diesel 0.005%: decrease of 14 cents per litre;

Illuminating Paraffin: decrease of 15 cents per litre.
