So, South Africans took to social media to share their frustration and Briefly.co.za decided to take a look at the most cut-throat reactions to the fuel hike.

Renaldo Gouws, who goes by the Twitter handle @RenaldoGouws, added: "I think it's safe to say that everyone can now see the problem was never JUST Jacob Zuma but in actual fact it is the ANC as a whole. You can change the president as much as you like but the problem is still the ANC as an organisation and as the government. #FuelPriceHike."
Another tweep, @uNdlunkulu_Xoli, commented: "South Africans are way too nice. Ba chilled, ba right, no stress, none whatsoever, you'd think the whole country is rich. If it was another country they'd call for a national shutdown against this bs. #FuelPriceHike."
