April will see another fuel price hike in South Africa and it's going to be a big one. This increase is expected to wreak havoc on drivers and consumers.

The Automobile Association (AA) of South Africa warned of this big fuel spike, according to a report by The South African.

South Africans can expect to pay about R1.18 more per litre of petrol and about 90c more per litre of diesel after the increase.

The introduction of revised fuel levies pushed things over the brink, and now a hike won't likely be avoided.

The projected basic fuel price increase is being billed as 98 cents for petrol, 70 cents for diesel and 63 cents for illuminating paraffin. But, increases to the fuel levies will push the prices at the pumps even higher when they come into effect in April.
