If you take taxes and levies out of our price we are probably only looking at about R4 per litre.

Heres a question. I don't know who can remember this but in the days when Barend Du Plessis was minister of finance we paid additional tax for the building of Sasol so we could have cheaper fuel. What has happened to that?

I do a contract magazine for Automobile Ass. What would you guys say to the fact that fuel lands at our harbours at R1.50 a Litre?
