Motorists in Cape Town are looking forward to some relief as the Department of Energy announced a drop of up to 34 cents a litre in fuel prices.
The decrease of 34c/l for 95 octane petrol, set to take effect from the January 3, will drop the per litre price to R14.42 inland, while the coastal price declines to R13.93.
The department also announced a decrease of 29c/l for 93 octane petrol, while the per litre price of diesel (with 0.05% and 0.005% sulphur content) will decrease by 22c and 26c respectively.
Fuel price drop
While the average international prices of petrol and diesel increased the rand’s strength against the dollar helped lower fuel prices overall.
