The fuel price is set for another record decrease from the sixth of May. The latest fuel price adjustments have been announced by Mineral Resources Minister, Gwede Mantashe.
The Automobile Association says a record decrease in the price of fuel is expected in May due to the lockdown and other factors.
With the announcement that the country has slipped into a technical recession, it is not all doom and gloom for South Africans with the announcement that petrol prices are set to decrease.
