Fuel prices to decrease


28 June 2011

South African motorists struggling to keep up with rising costs will be pleased to know that the price of fuel will decrease from next week.

Consumers will pay between 20 and 30 cents less for their petrol from the 6th July.

Diesel is also set to drop by around six to ten cents a litre.

In May, petrol prices reached their highest level since 2008.

The South African Petroleum Retailer’s Association’s Peter Noke said: “We can certainly expect some relief for motorists. We need more relief than this, but this is good. We will take it. We will take what we can.”
