Little relief awaits South Africans planning to travel this Easter weekend.
The price of 93-octane petrol will drop by a mere 1c per liter domestically at midnight on Tuesday, while the price of 95-octane petrol will rise by 2c per liter tonight. This means that from Wednesday, motorists will pay R22.64 per liter for 93‑octane petrol and R22.97 per liter for 95‑octane petrol in the interior.
The adjustment of the diesel price is somewhat more noteworthy: The price of diesel with a sulfur content of 0.05% will drop by 73c per liter at midnight. Diesel with a sulfur content of 0.005% becomes cheaper by 74c per litre. Motorists in the interior will therefore pay between R20.88 and R20.93 per litre.
However, the biggest price adjustment for April is that of paraffin, for which consumers will pay R1.24 per liter less this month.
Uasa says the adjustments to the fuel prices will not exactly make a big difference at the fuel pump, especially not for travelers who will be traveling longer distances over the Easter weekend and need to fill up their tank.
The trade union is warning South Africans to be smart with their money this Easter weekend and not spend money unnecessarily.
