Petrol and diesel goes up from Monday

Petrol and diesel prices are set to jump again on Monday, thanks to a looming deal between OPEC countries and Russia to ‘freeze’ the production of crude.

According to media reports, the deal has seen a strong increase in trading prices which will now be reflected at the pumps.

The new increase “will be one of the highest since the beginning of the year”, reports TVI24.

Diesel will rise the most, by an extra 3.5 cents per litres, while petrol will go up 3 cents.

The deal is expected to be struck at a meeting going ahead in Doha, Qatar, this weekend.
