South Africa: Mantashe Calls for Crude Oil Imports from Russia

“These taxes include a R3.93 per litre general fuel levy and a R2.18 per litre Road Accident Fund levy” stated DA Member of Parliament Kevin Mileham.

However, the ANC contested the deregulation of fuel prices, citing the impact it would have on small operators.

“We should consider importing crude oil from Russia at a low price because it is not sanctioned. Of all the sanctions, there are no sanctions against crude oil, so we can import crude oil from Russia at a lower price,” Mantashe said.
