Looming fuel crisis raises concerns for economists: "Time to start riding bikes"
Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that Chief Economist at the Efficient Group (a JSE-listed financial services company) Dawie Roodt, has revealed that the rising petrol price in Mzansi and the global energy crisis will soon add pressure on South Africans.
Similarly, Chief Executive of Debt Rescue Neil Roets stated that SA's excessive fuel costs are one of the most important causes of diesel increasing by 69% and petrol by 85% since 2011. Broken down, this translates to a 50-litre tank of petrol costing over R915 versus it being under R500, 10 years ago.
Roets explained that the country is entering the last quarter of the year and customers are now looking forward to the holiday season. However, abrupt and intense price increases are expected across the board.
