The wholesale price of illuminating paraffin would drop by 22c/l and the single maximum national retail price (SMNRP) by 30c/l.

The maximum retail price of LPGas would drop by 77c/kg.

The decrease in fuel prices was due to the average international product prices of petrol, diesel and illuminating paraffin dropping during the period under review – 26 April to 1 June.

The rand had also appreciated against the US dollar during this period, on average, when compared with the previous period, the department said.
