Here is the official petrol price for June

 ·4 Jun 2024

The Department of Mineral Resources and Energy has published the latest official fuel price adjustments, which will kick in from Wednesday, 5 June 2024.

As has been the trend for much of May, fuel recoveries have been in motorists’ favour, with both petrol and diesel showing over-recoveries for the month.

This has translated to much-needed relief at the pumps, with prices coming down by R1.24 cents per litre for petrol and between R1.09 and R1.19 cents per litre for diesel.

The table below outlines the changes:

Petrol 93decrease of 124 cents per litre
Petrol 95decrease of 124 cents per litre
Diesel 0.05% (wholesale)decrease of 119 cents per litre
Diesel 0.005% (wholesale)decrease of 109 cents per litre
Illuminating Paraffindecrease of 80 cents per litre
LPGASdecrease of 135 cents per kg

The average international product prices for Petrol, Diesel and Illuminating Paraffin decreased during the period under review.

The Rand appreciated against the US Dollar during the period under review, on average, when compared to the previous period. The average Rand/US Dollar exchange rate for the period 26 April 2024 to 30 May 2024 was 18.4664 compared to 18.9036 during the previous period.

This led to a lower contribution to the Basic Fuel Prices on petrol, diesel and illuminating paraffin by 30.91 c/l, 29.90 c/l and 30.03 c/l respectively.

The combined cumulative petrol and diesel Slate balances at the end of April 2024 amounted to a negative balance of R696.3 million.

In line with the provisions of the Self-Adjusting Slate Levy Mechanism, a Slate Levy of 4.38 c/l (decrease of 17.54 c/l) has been implemented into the price structures of petrol and diesel with effect from 05 June 2024.

This is how the price changes will reflect at the pumps (Diesel prices reflect wholesale, pump prices will differ):
