Layton Beard of the Automobile Association talks to Lester Kiewit about how fuel hikes may affect this Easter weekend's road use.

The data is suggesting there is another fuel price hike on the cards.

It will likely only effect petrol with a 56 cent a litre increase. Diesel may decrease by 5 cents, he says.

I don't think it's going to be good news.

I don't think it will have a significant impact on Easter traffic.

People will probably still go on planned holiday trips, he says, and religious trips such as the religious pilgrimage to Moria outside Polokwane in Limpopo is unlikely to be affected.

The fuel increase impact will be felt in the long run in all sectors.
