Minister speaks on fuel


THE Zimbabwe Energy Regulatory Authority (ZERA) has announced another fuel price hike, barely a week after an upward review.

The latest increase is with immediate effect and has been blamed on a global increase in prices of the precious liquid as a result of the Russia-Ukraine war.

The minister advised citizens to use public transport if the fuel prices have become unfriendly.

A litre of petrol is now pegged at US$1.68 from US$1.51 while diesel will now be sold at US$1.67 up from US$1.51.

“Please be advised that there has been a review of prices for diesel and blend for March 2022 and are as follows; Diesel US$1.68, Blend US$1.67,” reads ZERA’s statement.
