Department of Energy: Festive season petrol and diesel available countrywide

DECEMBER 22, 2014

The Department of Energy on Monday said petrol and diesel will be available throughout the country.

The department said that oil companies had given it assurance.

"The department also expects to announce the third consecutive significant fuel price decrease for January 2015," the department said in a statement.

The expected decrease is due to decreases of crude oil prices that have been witnessed in the international markets during the preceding months.

It also reminded the nation to conserve power following power cuts by the country energy utility, Eskom.
