Diesel is going up by between R2.30 and R2.31.

Illuminating paraffin is also going up by R1.66 a litre.

Government says the main reasons for the increase are the rising crude oil prices, the rand/dollar exchange rate and the addition of levies that were halted as short-term relieve measure to address the fuel price increases.
