Petrol price coming down again
South Africa’s petrol price at the pumps will fall by about 7,3% a litre next Wednesday, mainly due to lower international oil prices, the energy department said on Friday.
This is a drop of 89 cents for 93 octane petrol.
A litre of 95 octane petrol will cost 85 cents less.
The 95 octaine petrol will therefore be sold at R10,82 a litre in Gauteng and at R10,47 at the coast.
A litre of 93 octane petrol will cost R10,1097 in Gauteng and R9,8627 at the coast.
The wholesale diesel price will decrease by 5,9% to 10,11 rand.
The wholesale price of illuminating paraffin will drop by 58 cents a litre.
The single maximum national retail price for illuminating paraffin will decrease by 77 cents a litre to reach R9,71, and the maximum retail price for LP Gas by R1,13 a kilogram to reach R19,12 at the coast and R20,94 in Gauteng.
The slate levy on petrol and diesel will decrease from 10.96 cents a litre to 4.38 cents a litre.
