Fuel your knowledge with the latest updates on fuel pricing.

 

The Basic Fuel Price (BFP) is calculated based on costs associated with shipping petroleum products to South Africa from the Mediterranean area, Arab Gulf, and Singapore.

Essentially, these costs include insurance, storage and wharfage; as well as the cost to use harbour facilities when off-loading petroleum products into storage facilities.

Inland Region

 

The inland region refers to the inner parts of the continent. These areas are relatively far from the coast, resulting in higher petroleum price margins due to the following factors that contribute to the distribution of fuel from the harbours:

 

  • Insurance Costs.
  • Fuel Levy Costs.
  • Transportation Costs.
  • Secondary Storage Costs.
  • Road Accident Fund Costs.
  • Retail Margin Costs.

 
 

Coastal Region

 

The coastal region refers to the areas near the ocean. These areas are closer to the harbour(s) where imported petroleum is received. This results in lower fuel price margins due to the fewer distribution costs listed below:

 

  • Insurance Costs.
  • Transportation Costs.
  • Customs Costs.
  • Wharfage Costs.
  • Fuel Levy Costs.
  • Retail Margin Costs.
