Motorists will receive further assistance from Government, as from June, to ease the financial pressure brought on by the drastic increase in oil and fuel prices.
Finance Minister, Enoch Godongwana yesterday announced the first of these measures – the reduction of the general fuel levy by R1.50 per litre of fuel – which comes into effect on Wednesday.
He said Treasury would also, in two months, introduce a price cap on 93 octane petrol which would allow retailers to sell fuel below the regulated prices.
He says these additional relief measures will come into effect in the first week of June 2022.

Motorists in the Bellville CBD will start paying for parking bays again from Friday the 1st of April.
This, as the City’s Directorate of Transport, announced the return of parking marshalls to the area, after an almost 2-year absence.
Mayoral committee member at the Directorate, Rob Quintas says the move will ensure a turnover of parking bays for motorists frequenting shops, restaurants, and other facilities in the area.
He reminds motorists that they need to pay for parking upfront.
