Fuel price could decrease in October ‘21

Posted in Home

BONUS - RUSTENBURG - Mid-month data from the Central Energy Fund (CEF) shows that fuel prices could decline in October, bringing welcome relief for motorists. The data made available by the CEF up to 16 September shows an over-recovery in both petrol and diesel prices, pointing to a possible drop of between 18 and 21 cents per litre for petrol and around 9 cents per litre for diesel. The Automobile Association (AA) however, warns that rising oil prices and a weakening rand could flip this around before month-end.
