JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - The retail price of petrol and the wholesale price of diesel in South Africa will fall Wednesday because the rand has strengthened, the energy department said on Friday.

The price of petrol will fall by 34 cents to 14.42 rand per litre in the commercial hub of Gauteng province. Diesel will fall by 22 cents to 12.73 rand.
