There is speculation that consumers could be hit by a 27cents/litre increase in the petrol price on the first Wednesday of September.Brent oil prices climbed to above $111 per barrel to a four-month high on Thursday on fears that violence in Egypt could affect the Suez Canal or spread in the Middle East, where supplies are already disrupted.Click on this website for active fuel pricing from the fuel Retailers organisation in South Africa.
This amount is the cost involved in importing the fuel from refineries in the Mediterranean, Singapore, and the Arab Gulf, and includes a number of charges such as shipping, taxes and down payments which have to be paid by oil importers in order for the petrol to arrive on South African soil. Since this component makes up just over half the petrol price, the rest is accounted for by the following domestic charges:
  • Tax (27.9%) – This amount of money is tax which is paid directly to the SA government. It includes customs duties, Road Accident Fund contributions and the basic fuel tax.
  • Wholesale Margin (7%) – This amount is paid to the oil company which supplies the petrol to cover marketing costs.
  • Retail Margin (8.4%) – This is the mark-up applied by the retailer (usually a chain of filling stations).
  • Transport Costs (2.4%) and Delivery Cost (1.2%) – These costs occur when the petrol is transported from one of South Africa’s harbours to your local filling station.
From these numbers, it becomes clear that the biggest cause of expensive fuel in South Africa, besides the basic cost of oil, is the sizeable taxation which is paid to the government. Although these taxes pay for the Road Accident Fund, the price of fuel could be reduced if a lower tariff were applied, easing the burden on South Africa’s road users.
