UASA Media Release: 04 January 2023
Statement by Abigail Moyo, spokesperson of the trade union UASA:
The drop in the fuel price today will have workers, particularly parents of school-going children, in good spirits as it will put more disposable income in their pockets, heightening their spending power.
In a happy start to the New Year, the Department of Mineral Resources and Energy (DMRE) announced that the price of 93 and 95 petrol will decrease by R2.06/l, and 500 ppm and 50 ppm diesel by R2.69/l and R2.81/l, respectively. The wholesale price of illuminating paraffin will fall by R1.93/l and the retail price by R2.58/l. LP gas will increase by 82c/kg.
As most workers end their festive season and learners prepare to return to school, UASA is pleased about the effect of the lower prices on South African pockets.
