New fuel prices will go into effect from November 15 to December 14 according to an announcement from the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA).
Prices in Nairobi dropped by Ksh1 across the board, with Super Petrol now selling for Ksh177.30, Diesel for Ksh162, and Kerosene for Ksh145.94.
At first, a liter of Super petrol cost Ksh178, a liter of Diesel cost Ksh163, and a liter of Kerosene cost Ksh146. After midnight on November 14th, the revised pricing will be in effect for the next 1 month.
Petrol cost Ksh174.98 per litre, Diesel cost Ksh159.76 per litre, and Kerosene cost Ksh143.69 per litre at the pumps in Mombasa.
Nakuru residents may now purchase petrol for Ksh176.62, diesel for Ksh161.83, and kerosene for Ksh145.79.
Eldoret petrol stations charge Ksh177.50 for petroleum, Ksh162.72 for diesel, and Ksh146.67 for kerosene.
This comes as new fees were authorized by EPRA for oil companies to discharge petroleum from the Nairobi-based Kenya Pipeline Company (KPC) depot.
This resulted in a rise in the price per cubic meter paid by oil distributors from Ksh2,074.5 to Ksh2,526.6. Prices, according to economists’ predictions, would rise or fall during the following three years as a result of the additional tariffs.
