From Wednesday (7 October), motorists will be paying a little less to fill up their vehicles. The government recently announced the following decreases in fuel prices:
- 93 Petrol – 23 cents per litre
- 95 Petrol – 32 cents per litre
- Diesel (50 PPM) – 90 cents per litre
- Diesel (500PPM) – 93 centre per litre
These decreases are mainly due to two factors. The first is the stronger Rand, with the Rand/Dollar exchange rate improving from 17.28 to 16.72. Secondly, the average Brent Crude oil price decreased from $44.78 per barrel to $44.82.
Despite this good news on the first Monday of October, the AA warned motorists not to get comfortable with these prices. Since early August, the trend has been a stronger Rand and cheaper oil prices. But this could change due to the ongoing instability in the local and global economies. The Covid-19 pandemic remains an influencing factor, and the US election, which takes place in a little less than a month, could also affect prices.
