Petrol, diesel prices drop by KSh1 and KSh2 in EPRA latest review
The prices of super petrol, diesel and kerosene have been reduced by KSh1, KSh2 and KSh1 respectively, the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority announced on Friday, October 14.
This now means that in Nairobi, super petrol will retail at KSh178.30, diesel will sell at KSh163.00, while kerosene will go at KSh146.94.
In Mombasa, Kenyans will have to part with KSh175.98 for a litre of petrol, KSh160.79 for diesel and KSh144.69 for kerosene.
As far as fuel prices in Kisumu are concerned, a litre of petrol will be selling at KSh178.50, diesel at KSh163.70 and kerosene at KSh147.66.
The new pump prices take effect at midnight October 15, and will run up to 14th November.
EPRA says that a subsidy of KSh18.15 per litre and KSh27.47 per litre has been maintained for diesel and kerosene respectively in order to cushion consumers from the otherwise high prices. Subsidy on petrol was dropped by President William Ruto's government last month.
"The government will utilise the Petroleum Development Levy to compensate oil marketing companies for the difference in cost," EPRA's report reads in part.
