Van Zyl's post followed only hours after the Automobile Association predicted a substantial fuel price drop for July.

Briefly.co.za revealed on Facebook that lower international oil prices were to thank for the relief on South Africans' wallets.

The association said there's an expected 86 cents a litre drop for petrol, 68 cents lower for diesel, and illuminating paraffin could see a reduction of 58 cents.
