Fuel goes up tomorrow

31 July 2018 | Energy


Namibians can brace themselves for yet another fuel price increase tomorrow due to a fuel tax increase.
The energy ministry announced that fuel prices will increase by 25 cents, not due to a petrol or diesel increase, but, an increase in fuel tax. Fuel pump prices in Walvis Bay will increase by 25c/l for both 95 octane unleaded petrol (retail) and all grades of diesel.
