Petrol prices are set to drop at the end of the month

According to the Automobile Association (AA), petrol prices are set to drop at the end of June. This comes after the Central Energy Fund (CEF) released unaudited month-end fuel price data.

AA said in a statement: “The Rand remained firm over the past month, apart from a brief reversal caused by the Public Protector’s controversial comments on the role of the Reserve Bank.”

“At the same time, international petroleum prices maintained their downward trajectory. This adds up to a pleasing drop in the fuel price which will be a patch of good news for many in the current economic conditions.”

Petrol is set to drop by up to 69 cents a litre, diesel by 62 cents, and illumination paraffin by 58 cents.

“The drop in paraffin prices will be particularly beneficial to citizens who rely on this fuel for lighting, cooking, and especially heating, in the winter months,” said AA.

“As ever, even medium-term predictions of the fuel price remain difficult in the current environment of political instability and weak economic conditions. We advise all fuel users to create space in their budgets for price increases if the picture should deteriorate further,” AA concludes.
