South African motorists will be paying less to fill up their tanks from Wednesday 5 February 2020. Petrol drops by 13 cents per litre and diesel by 5 cents a litre, according to Minister of Mineral Resources and Energy Gwede Mantashe.

Mantashe, in a statement on Monday, said the main reason for the decrease in the fuel prices was lower global crude oil prices during the period under review.

The current inland price for a litre of unleaded 95 octane petrol is R16.16. From Wednesday, this is set to fall to R16.03/l.
