The Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) on Wednesday, June 14, released fuel prices taking effect from midnight.

In the new review, a litre of super petrol was reduced by Ksh0.66 and will retail at Ksh182.04. Diesel, on the other hand, will retail at Ksh167.28 after being reduced by Ksh1.12.

However, the price of kerosene was increased by Ksh0.35 and will be retailing at Ksh161.48 per litre for the next month.

“Taking into account the weighted average cost of imported refined petroleum products, the changes in the maximum allowed petroleum pump prices in Nairobi are as follows:

“Super petrol and diesel decrease by Kshs.0.66 per litre and Kshs.1.12 per litre respectively while Kerosene increases by Kshs.0.35 per litre,” read the statement in part.

In Mombasa, a litre of super petrol will retail at Ksh179.20 while diesel will be sold at Ksh164.45. A litre of Kerosene in the coastal county will go for Ksh158.65.

EPRA also revealed that a litre of super petrol in Nakuru will go for Ksh181.18 as diesel in the new city sells for Ksh166.78. The price of kerosene was put at Ksh161.01.

The authority added that the new prices also factored in the 8% Value Added Tax (VAT) as stipulated in the Finance Act 2018 and the Tax Laws (Amendment) Act 2020.

In the May – June fuel price review, super petrol retailed at Ksh182.70 after an increase of Ksh3.40. Kerosene was the most affected with an increase of Kshs15.19 per litre – making it retail at Ksh161.13.
