THE GOV­ERN­MENT was con­sid­er­ing cap­ping the price of 93-oc­tane unleaded petrol, En­ergy Min­is­ter Jeff Radebe said yes­ter­day.

He said the gov­ern­ment had asked the pe­tro­leum in­dus­try for ad­vice on what the im­pact would be if the gov­ern­ment set a max­i­mum price for 93-oc­tane unleaded.

“We have given the in­dus­try un­til Oc­to­ber 18 to re­spond, af­ter which we will take an ap­pro­pri­ate de­ci­sion.”

Radebe’s com­ments come as protests against the high cost of fuel con­tinue. | African News Agency (ANA)
