Fuel Price Hikes Trigger Fares
5 August 2021

By A Correspondent-The recent hiking of fuel prices by the government is likely to push fares upwards and make life difficult for residents

Government Thursday increased the prices of fuel without engaging the commuting public.

In a statement, ZERA said the maximum pump price of diesel is now ZWL$114.29 or US$1.33 per litre and petrol  ZWL$117.07 or US$1.37 per litre.

 ZERA said operators may, however, sell at prices below the cap depending on their trading advantages.

Before this price increase, diesel was selling at ZWL$110.54 or US$1.30 per litre while petrol was pegged at ZWL$112.55 or US$1.33per litre.
