Petrol down, diesel up for December

Petrol clawed back its losses to end in positive territory, while diesel swung further into negative territory.

Fuel price changes for December will depend on what fuel you use, according to the Automobile Association (AA).

Prices will come into effect on Wednesday.

Petrol is slated to fall by around 27c a litre, while diesel’s price increase has been contained to around 13c a litre.

The biggest loser is illuminating paraffin, which is set for a 22c a litre rise – bad news for those who use this fuel for cooking and lighting.

“International product prices of refined fuels spiked just before mid-month, but then pulled back. Petrol clawed back its losses to end in positive territory, while diesel swung further into negative territory,” the AA said.

The association also said the rand has put in an impressive performance against the US dollar during November, with the average exchange rate dipping into the R15.70 range in the last week of the month.
