Fuel prices are dropping on Wednesday 7 September, but the margin of drop for diesel is significantly less than that of petrol.

he fuel price is going down on Wednesday and South Africans couldn’t be happier with the decrease. The reduction marks a welcome reprieve for average South Africans who may be feeling like they’ve been held hostage at the pumps.

However, diesel vehicle owners aren’t cheering quite as much since their chosen fuel source doesn’t appear to be benefitting quite as much as the more common petrol. The energy ministry announced on Monday that both grades of petrol were set to decrease by R2.04 per litre, a significant saving. However, diesel is set to drop by 56 cents and 46 cents per litre depending on its grade.
