Natural Resources Principal Secretary: COVID-19 vaccine rollout influenced fuel prices increase

Wednesday, 3rd February, 2021

MBABANE: Dorcas Dlamini the Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Natural Resources and Energy has advised that there will be an increase of fuel prices with effect from February 4, 2021.

In a public statement,  Dlamini said the increase of the prices has been triggered by the upward movement of oil prices in international markets. Dlamini further mentioned that this has been influenced by the stimulation  of  global economic activity as a result of the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines  which has consequently increased the demand for crude oil.

Unleaded petrol (ULP 95) will increase from E12.45 to  per litre to E13.15 per liter while diesel 50ppm Sulphur (0.005%S)  shall increase from E12.90 per litre to E13.60 per litre and the illuminating paraffin price will increase from E7.95 per litre to E8.65 per litre.
