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;
