Early Christmas present for motorists across SA since the petrol price is set to drop tomorrow (Wed 7th December) by around 20 cents per litre. Ok so not really a Christmas present more like one of those prizes you get in a Christmas cracker then…like a nail clipper. Joy.
If you remember, the petrol price increased by 45c a litre in November last month so a drop of 20 cents per litre isn’t exactly gonna make anyone do a happy dance. We will take it though and be grateful it didn’t go up again.
Maybe a full tank image isn’t appropriate…shoulda used a one where it’s not empty, but the warning light is flashing.
A stronger rand against the dollar and lower global crude oil prices both contributed to the decrease. Diesel is dropping by around 32 cents a litre.
