Fuel price: Petrol and diesel news GOOD for December 2023
The latest fuel projections for December 2023 shows some good news for both petrol drivers and diesel car owners.
The latest fuel projections from the Central Energy Fund (CEF) for December 2023 shows some excellent news for diesel drivers and a promising outlook for petrol car owners.
This news comes on the back of massive price decreases for both petrol and diesel earlier this month, as reported by The South African website.
Below, the latest projections as received by The South African website from the CEF, effective Friday, 17 November 2023.
|Petrol 93||decrease of 108 cents|
|Petrol 95||decrease of 109 cents|
|Diesel 0.05%||decrease of 221 cents|
|Diesel 0.005%||decrease of 226 cents|
|Illuminating Paraffin||decrease of 183 cents|
If these market conditions were to remain consistent for the remainder of the month – an unlikely scenario with the rand/dollar exchange rate ever fluctuating and the oil price changing – a decrease of 108 cents is expected for petrol 93 octane motorists and a decrease of 109 cents for 95 users.
Meanwhile, diesel motorists would see something around a 221 to 226 cents per litre decrease.
Finally, illuminating paraffin is expected to decrease by 183 cents.
