The Automobile Association (AA) release a statement on Monday saying they are expecting the price of fuel to decrease again in September.
According to figures released by CEF, the weaker rand has been offset by dropping international oil prices leading to an over recovery to date in August. If this trend continues then motorists will have the benefit of lower prices at the pump in September.
