- A man took to Twitter to share photos of his car's petrol gauge
- He revealed it took only R429 to fill up his vehicle's tank to the top
- However, the tweep and other Saffas got chest pains when they realised fuel prices are set to increase
When the coronavirus broke out across the world, countries went into lockdown, oil prices crashed and life as we knew it changed completely.
All the factors played a major role in petrol prices dropping significantly. However, now that things are slowly starting to get back to normal, SA motorists can expect a fuel price increase in the near future.
One man expressed his sadness over the coming increase after he managed to fill up his car for under R500.
A social media user, who was only identified by his Twitter handle @Lany_SKA, revealed it took him only R429 to fill up his car with petrol.
He posted snaps on the social media platform to verify his claims and wrote:
"Yeses the feeling of getting a full tank with this amount is life, yeses. Why are they increasing it though?"
Take a look at his post below:
Social media users were stunned at how little it cost to fill up his car and many were bummed out about the coming fuel price increases.
Thabang Moseamedi, who goes by the Twitter handle @ThabangMoseamed, commented:
"Lol it's about time bro. I really enjoyed this time and less traffic."
Social media user, @codythetaurus, wrote:
"More cars on the road = increase in fuel. Demand and supply."
Another tweep, @thabomothabi, added:
"Cause they opened for alcohol, so they have to increase petrol price."
Twitter user, @Haha_Its_Ozz, said:
"Lol, one day you'll show your grandchildren this photo and they'll think it's photoshopped."
Briefly.co.za previously reported on a similar story. A female motorist took to Twitter to gush about how little she spent to fill her car's petrol tank.
Providing photos to corroborate her story, Twitter user Rakgadi wa Picanto (@RakgadiMmati) revealed that she only spent R372 to fill her ride to the brim.
The young lady revealed that she drives a Kia Picanto and it proved to be a big talking point. While many lauded her for the prudent vehicle choice, others were quick to mock her small vehicle with tiny engine.
