MOTORISTS will be forking out some extra cash for their fuel from today as the new fuel prices come into effect.

The Fijian Competition and Consumer Commission (FCCC) announced the changes in fuel prices came into effect today.

The new prices are as follows:

Motor spirit from $2.11 to $2.19 a litre, an increase of 8 cents a litre

Premix from $1.97 to $2.02 a litre, an increase of 5 cents a litre

Kerosene from $1.59 to $1.57 a litre, a decrease of 2 cents a litre

Diesel to remain the same at $1.85 a litre

FCCC acting CEO Senikavika Jiuta said the increases in prices were set because of the mid-September drone attacks on the Abqaiq and Khurais oil refinery in Saudi Arabia, which is the largest crude oil stabilisation plant in the world.
