THE projected decrease in the price of petrol of between 19 and 25 cents a litre predicted by economist Dawie Roodt should not serve as an incentive for consumers to go out and spend money they don't have.

Roodt said depending on the price of crude oil and the Rand US Dollar exchange rate, the price of petrol could drop by as much as 25 cents a litre on Friday with a further decrease of about 13 cents a litre predicted for October. The diesel price is expected to remain unchanged.

Neil Roets, CEO of one of South Africa’s largest debt counselling firms, Debt Rescue, said while the predicted price reduction was to be welcomed, consumers should not see this as an opportunity to stack up even more debt.

“What we hope for is that the retail sector takes cognisance of this reduction and that it will be reflected in lower prices for all goods and services once the price decrease has worked its way through the system.”
