Cape Town - The price of fuel could be significantly cheaper, owing to the strengthening of the rand, the Automobile Association (AA) said on Monday.

"Petrol is slated for a reduction of up to 69 cents a litre, diesel 94 cents, and illuminating paraffin is showing a potential drop of 92 cents," said the AA about unaudited mid-month fuel price data released by the Central Energy Fund.

This follows a 99c/l drop on August 3 owing to the stronger rand and weaker oil price.
