Marlene Schiefer, Simon’s Town
To all owners of diesel vehicles, unlike petrol, the price of diesel is not regulated, which means a fuel retailer can charge whatever he wants for diesel.
A retailer in Simon’s Town has just done that and charges R18.19 a litre whereas the price in the Fish Hoek area is about R17.35 a litre
This translates into an extra profit (or your loss) of 84c a litre.
So next time you fill up first check the price! In my case it amounted to R80 over payment.
