The Energy Department says the price of petrol will rise by 16-cents a litre on Wednesday.
But the diesel price will drop by between 12-point-nine and 13-point-nine-cents, depending on the sulphur content.
Illuminating paraffin will also drop by nine-cents a litre.
Spokesperson Bheki Khumalo says the drop in the diesel price is a result of the global financial crisis because the demand for diesel is low in Europe.
