Slight decrease in fuel prices

The wholesale price of diesel will decrease by nearly 4c/l on Wednesday next week, the department of energy announced today. The retail price of petrol will be 8c/l cheaper.

However the government warned that the recent weakening of the rand to the US dollar to a four year low, would affect the July fuel price. "The department would like to take this opportunity to caution that the impact of the weaker currency will be felt in the July adjustment," the energy ministry said in a statement.
