Petrol price relief for drivers

NOVEMBER 2, 2015

The pump price of all grades of petrol, the whole sale price of both grades of diesel, the maximum retail price of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and the prices of illuminating paraffin will decrease with effect from next Wednesday November 4 2015.
 
The Department of Energy announced this on Saturday. South Africa’s fuel prices are adjusted on a monthly basis, as determined by various international and local factors.
 
The main reasons for the fuel price decreases in November, according to the department, are the strengthening of the rand against the dollar and the drop in the prices of all petroleum products during the period under review.
 
Based on current local and international factors, the fuel prices for November are:
 
- Petrol (93 Octane) will decrease by 22.00 cents/litre;

- Petrol (95 Octane) will decrease by 22.00 cents/litre;

- Diesel (0.05% Sulphur) will decrease by 9.00 cents/ litre;
 
- Diesel (0.005% Sulphur) will decrease by 10.00 cents/ litre;

- Illuminating paraffin (SMNRP) will decrease by 3.00 cents/litre;

- Illuminating paraffin (wholesale) will decrease by 2.00 cents/litre;

- Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) will decrease by 47.00 cents/kilogram.

The pricing schedule for all the pricing zones will be published on Tuesday, November 3.
 
The Department of Energy urged motorists and all the households that use paraffin and LPGas to continue to use energy sparingly "during these difficult economic conditions".
