According to recent predictions, petrol prices are likely to decline by approximately R1 per litre starting in July.

The news was met with lukewarm reactions on social media, with many claiming that the drop is insufficient.

The price of gasoline fluctuates often in relation to the global price of crude oil, affecting consumers who are suffering with the expense of living and transportation.

Users on Facebook discussed the forthcoming price drop, with some claiming that it is not a huge decrease.

Rachel Muhammad, a Facebook user, stated: “R1 or even R2 is not a significant drop. This will not benefit the poor South Africans.”

Muhammad went on to say, “It will neither lower food prices or transportation costs; they will almost certainly rise significantly the next time. STOP SAYING IT IS MASSIVE, HUGE, BIG, OR ANY OTHER OBJECTIVE BECAUSE IT IS NOT. (sic)”

“We should be paying R15 less for fuel, but because our corrupt government just wants to steal money, we have to pay what they want us to pay,” stated Dewald Roux, another Facebook user.

Dale Hargreaves, VW Sales Executive and Facebook user, commented: “Let’s see if the prices of products will go down in the coming months, given how quickly they raise prices when prices rise.”Tongue in cheek.”
