Slight relief for motorists

Government has decided to hold off increasing the fuel wholesale retail margin for further discussions with the petroleum industry, a spokesman at the Minerals and Energy Department said yesterday. This means the price of the 95 grade of petrol will rise 75 cents a litre in Gauteng, rather than the 81 cents announced on Friday. The department said last week the wholesale retail margin would go up by 5,4 cents a litre.- Reuters
