Pretoria – Motorists will breathe a sigh of relief as the price of petrol is set to decrease next Wednesday.

Petrol price will drop by 20 cents, diesel by 32 cents while paraffin will decrease by 28 cents.

According to the Department of Energy, the main reasons for the fuel price adjustments are due to the contribution of the Rand/US Dollar exchange rate.

There was also a decrease in the prices of crude oil during the period under review. – SAnews.gov.za
