Fuel prices expected drop

By Ofentse Mokae
31 December 2009

Motorists will get a break as the price of 93 octane petrol will fall by nine-cents a litre and that of 95 octane by 6-cents on the sixth of next month.

The Department of Energy says diesel prices will also decrease by 14-cents a litre.

Wholesale paraffin falls by 12-cents and illuminating paraffin by 16-cents per litre.

The drop in the price of petrol means that motorists in Gauteng will pay 7-rand-86-cents a litre while a litre will cost 7-rand-63-cents at the coast.

The Department says the cut in prices is largely due to a decrease in the international product prices of petrol, diesel and illuminating paraffin and a firmer rand.
