The Petrol Price in South Africa and Around The World (Infographic)
Many of you regularly reading this blog will know that South Africa's cost of living is constantly increasing. I still remember buying 2 King Pies, a 500 ml Coke and a box of smokes for R13 back in 1996. Nowadays those particular items will set you back about R65 - and it's not getting any…
Your initial intro complaining about prices of SEVENTEEN YEARS AGO is a tad bit silly. I would understand the complaint if it was in the past five years.
The infographic is good-people must however just remember that the value in rand of foreign petrol prices are irrelevant as it matters to the country compared to the cost of living as per the latter part of the infographic. People also need to keep in mind the strength of the foreign economies and specific infrastructure available (parastatals and public transport with independent regulators to reduce corruption and missappropriation of funds)
Thank you for the post.
