Fuel prices have been announced by the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory  Authority (EPRA) and will be in effect from October 15 to November 14. Super Petrol’s price was raised in the most recent review by Ksh5.72, going from  Ksh211.64 to Ksh217.36.

Kerosene was hiked to Ksh203.06 from the current Ksh202.61 per litre, while diesel was raised to Ksh205.47 from Ksh200.99.”The variations in the maximum permitted petroleum pump prices in Nairobi, taking into account the weighted average cost of imported refined petroleum products, are as follows: Super Petrol, Diesel, and Kerosene each saw a per-liter price hike of Ksh5.72, Ksh4.48 and Ksh2.45 accordingly.

“In Nairobi, Super Petrol, Diesel and Kerosene  will  now retail at Ksh217.36,  Ksh205.47 & Ksh205.06 effective midnight for  the  next 30 days,” the statement  reads in part. Super Petrol will cost Ksh214.3 per liter in  Mombasa,  while Diesel will cost  Ksh202.41 and Kerosene Ksh201.99.

However, Super Petrol was fixed at Ksh217.12, Diesel at Ksh205.64, and Kerosene at Ksh205.22 in Kisumu. Super Petrol would cost Nakuru residents Ksh216.35. Prices were set at Ksh204.88 for diesel and Ksh204.56 for kerosene. Super Petrol, Diesel, and Kerosene were each fixed at Ksh217.12, Ksh205.65, and Ksh202.22 in Eldoret. In the most recent review, Mandera drivers were notably the most impacted, with a litre of Super Petrol costing Ksh231.36. In the northern Kenyan county, a litre of diesel will cost Ksh219.47, while Ksh219.06 was set as the price of kerosene. The hike, according to the authorities, was brought on by an increase in landing costs.

The Petroleum Development Levy (PDL) has also been taken into account while  determining prices for October. Super Petrol was supposed to raise Ksh8 if the prices weren’t being subsidized,  according to EPRA. “From the calculations, Super Petrol had been projected to increase by  Ksh8.79/litre, Diesel by Ksh16.12/litre and Kerosene by Ksh12.05/litre,” stated EPRA.
