South African motorists to benefit from the biggest price drop on record
Despite a 21-day lockdown limiting movement, motorists will still be able to benefit from what is described as the biggest petrol price drop on record from 1 April.
The Automobile Association has confirmed that unleaded 95 petrol is set for a R2.18/l drop, with 93 set to decrease by R2.05.
Diesel prices will be reduced by roughly R 1.65 and illuminating paraffin will head south by R1.98.
Automobile Association spokesperson Layton Beard says it is good news for essential services providers.
It certainly is good news for essential services providers. I think there is still a lot of people who are mobile and people who are going to need their vehicles.Layton Beard, Spokesperson - Automobile Association
Haulage companies who are transporting goods across the country will certainly benefit from this decrease and one would hope that a decrease to their input costs will result in a decrease to prices to consumers. Middle of the month if the lockdown is over, people will certainly still be able to benefit from the lower prices.Layton Beard, Spokesperson - Automobile Association
