Pain for motorists as petrol prices rise
- The cost of petrol will increase to Sh107.27 per litre while diesel will drop to Sh92.91 in Nairobi.
- Kerosene remains unchanged owing to fact that no cargo was discharged at Mombasa port in the last one month.
- The new fuel prices take effect from today (October 15) to November 14.
Nairobi motorists will have to dig deeper into their pockets after the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) reviewed fuel prices upwards.
The new fuel prices will be in force from today (Thursday, October 15) to 14th November 2020.
The price of super petrol in Nairobi is now retailing at Sh107.27 per litre, after an increase of 72 cents. However, it is a sigh of relief to diesel consumers as the price has dropped to Sh92.91 per litre from Ksh95.09.

The price of kerosene remains unchanged at Sh87.73 per litre. EPRA attributes this to the fact that no cargo was discharged at the port of Mombasa in the last one month.
The Pavel Oimeke-led authority was forced to review fuel prices for the second time in October after a change in the average landed cost for importation. For instance, the average landed cost of imported super petrol increased by 1.12% while that of diesel decreased by 5.42%.
Here are the new pump prices for the next 30 days at different towns in Kenya:
