The price of 93 and 95 octane petrol will fall by 20 cents from Wednesday.

As we head into the festive season, motorists will feel slight relief at the pumps with a 1.5% drop in the petrol price, reports the Germiston City News.

The new price on both 93 and 95 octane petrol will come into effect from Wednesday, December 7.

While the price of wholesale diesel will drop by 2.8%.

This means that the price of 93 octane petrol will fall by 20 cents to R12.59 a litre, with the 95 octane, also dropping by 20 cents, will cost R12.85 a litre, while diesel will decrease by 32 cents to R11.03 a litre.

The drop in price has been attributed to the strengthening rand against a drop in international oil prices.

The price of paraffin will drop by 38 cents.
