Johannesburg - South Africans will pay slightly more for petrol from Wednesday, August 7, while those with diesel-powered vehicles will enjoy a small reprieve.
The Department of Energy recently announced that all grades of petrol will increase by 11 cents a litre, while diesel will decrease by 14 cents in the case of low-sulphur 50ppm and 13 c/l for 500ppm.
But what exactly will you be paying at the pumps from Wednesday?
The table below outlines the prices for the different grades of fuel, both inland and at the coast. It’s worth noting that as diesel is deregulated, the department only releases wholesale prices. We have however come up with estimates based on the forecourt prices at 10 different stations - interestingly, prices varied by over R1 a litre in cases, so it definitely pays to shop around for your diesel.
