There are reports that fuel prices rose up to between $1.50 and $2 in Bulawayo and Harare on Friday.
The Secretary General of Progressive Teachers Union of Zimbabwe Raymond Majongwe said after talking to a few kombi drivers they said their reason for increasing fares was the demand for foreign currency by fuel service stations.
Commuter Omnibus users from Harare and Bulawayo confirmed to us that indeed the prices have gone up.
On Thursday state broadcaster ZBC reported that the fuel situation worsened with most service stations experiencing long winding queues whilst several others were out of stock of both diesel and petrol.
Despite government guarantee that it is working flat out to address fuel challenges in the country, the situation prevailing in Harare is dire, a scenario that will certainly affect productivity of most businesses as fuel is a key facilitator.
Motorists have called upon the government to prioritise fuel availability in the country.
