JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – Fuel price cuts could be on the way for South Africa by end-September 2020, according to the Automobile Association and going on unaudited mid-month fuel price data released by the Central Energy Fund.
The AA commented: “The rand has made a remarkable rally against the US dollar with the exchange rate strengthening from R17.30 on August 21 to R16.70 on August 31.
”Since September 1 the rand has traded in a commendably tight range.”
DIESEL, PARAFFIN DOWN TOO?
