Some reprieve for motorists at the pumps this September as petrol is expected to drop by around 11 cents a litre, diesel is expected to be up by 21 cents a litre, and illuminating paraffin by around 12 cents.
The Automobile Association (AA) on Monday said this was due to international petroleum prices’ continued gradual retreat during August, having pulled back by around 10% since the start of the month.
