The shortage of high octane fuel in Gauteng: Reggie Sibiya | Infrastructure news

High octane fuel could be running dry. The South African Fuel Retailers Association has confirmed there is a shortage of 95 unleaded petrol, mainly in Gauteng. It says that 300 of it’s 2500 member stations have already run out of the fuel. The Retailers Association represents around 60 percent of the industry, so the problem could be even more widespread. It says it’s linked to a delay in an element used to convert 93 unleaded into 95 unleaded. The crisis hits at a time when the price of petrol could be in for a big drop. The price of brent crude oil has fallen by around 30 percent this year.
