Motorists may get fuel price relief in February

JOHANNESBURG – The Energy Department says if the rand strengthens, motorists could get fuel price relief in February next year.

This is after the department announced a steep rise in petrol prices.

From next week Wednesday, the price of 93 octane will go up by 50 cents a litre, 95 octane goes up by 48 cents, while diesel goes up by 39 and 37 cents respectively.

The wholesale price of paraffin goes up by 58 cents a litre.

The department’s Robert Maake says: “We expect the rand to improve. If that happens it will help us to get lower prices in February.”
