“Am I reading her response right did I not go back and check the amount again?”
“Honest mistake. No disrespect to the woman but most of them don't really pay attention to petrol prices, fuel tank capacities and all.”
“Genuinely asking, is there a car that takes 18k worth of fuel?”
“Commas aren't communicating mara at least ke le qedela wena.”
“Numbers are not for everyone bakithi. Kushelele iminwe.”
“I'm going to pray for her any nyeke this is too much.”
“Tell mam Angie to check her matric certificate.”
“So vele blondes and the yellow bones are on the same WhatsApp group?”
“I hope she was just joking because wow.”
South Africa's fuel price is much higher than other African countries
Briefly News previously reported that South Africans are still coming to terms with the fact the price of petrol has once again gone over the R20 per litre mark since December 2021. Many citizens were outraged by the sharp increase in fuel but their anger subsided a little bit when the fuel price decreased in January 2022.
However, on Wednesday, 2 February, the Department of Energy and Mineral Resources announced another fuel hike which was just as drastic as the fuel hike many complained about in December.
The new fuel increase placed the price of 95 petrol at R20.14 from R19.61 and 93 petrol is now R19.89 from R19.36. 0.05% diesel went from R17.24 to R18.04 while 0.005% diesel went from R17.28 to R18.07, according to BusinessTech.
