Diesel prices have stagnated in recent weeks, settling at the 55c/l mark, plus 13.5% VAT.

In early March, diesel prices had been rising by 1c/l each week, with medium-sized buyers paying between 55c-57c/l, plus VAT.

A 2,000-4,000l buyer was quoted between 54c-56c/l plus VAT for green diesel this month from a variety of sellers.

Bigger contractors and buying groups can expect to receive lower quotes, while farmers filling a small tank in the yard are paying closer to 60c/l, plus VAT.

Current market trends show that prices are expected to float around the 55c/l mark plus VAT, with no sign of reduction on the horizon.
