Fuel prices have increased to Ksh250 

Published on

With President William Ruto’s administration working against the clock to alleviate the problem, petrol outlets in certain regions of the nation have been forced to raise the price of a liter of petroleum to Ksh250.

Residents of Ilbisil town near Namanga in Kajiado County complained on September 17 that the price of petrol had been raised to Ksh250, from the Ksh179.30 suggested by the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority ( EPRA).

Kajiado town was also affected, with drivers and boda boda riders competing for the supply.

Maili Tisa and Nkatatoek in the county had a similar crisis.

However, drivers waiting in the lines for many hours were limited to purchasing 10 litres at a time.
Due to the circumstance, drivers were forced to look for alternatives in the nearby towns of Athi River and Machakos.

Residents felt the government could have done more to protect citizens from rising fuel prices as the nation struggled with inflation.

Residents in the regions of Lamu, Laisamis, Meru, Mtito Andei, Elwak, Mandera, Kericho, Kisii, Nyamira, Homa Bay, Migori, Busia, and Kimilili paid between Ksh180 and Ksh192 for petrol.
