Fuel price hike

Fuel price hikes are killing this economy. This government needs to look at reducing fuel levies. The general fuel levy (GFL) was R3.96 in May which represents 17% of every litre of petrol sold in South Africa. The RAF levy was at R2.18 a litre representing around 11% on every litre of fuel sold. The minister of finance can reduce these levies. South Africans need relief. This economy needs relief. The cost of fuel is driving inflation. It is time to reduce the GFL and grow the South African economy. Government needs to cut down its wasteful expenditure. Government officials need to tighten their budgets. South Africans have been doing that since the pandemic. Meet the people half way. There are other ways to save money in this economy without punishing the people.
