An Early Christmas Gift For Motorists as Regulator Reduces Fuel Prices

Motorists have a reason to smile as the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) on Saturday, 14th December, reduced fuel prices. 

Super petrol will now cost Ksh1.09 per litre less, the diesel price is down by Ksh2.83 while the cost of kerosene has been slashed by Ksh1.75.

This comes as a big relief to motorists and Kenyans at large, who like to travel to different destinations for the Christmas holiday celebrations. 

In Nairobi, super petrol, diesel and kerosene will sell at Ksh109.50, Ksh101.78 and Ksh102.31, respectively.

The new prices, EPRA says, are as a result of a dip in the average imported cost of super petrol, which decreased by 0.52 percent per cubic metre in November compared to October.

The cost of imported diesel also fell by 3.36 percent per cubic metre, while kerosene dipped by 3.75 percent per cubic metre in November compared to October.

In Mombasa, super petrol will retail at Ksh107.45, diesel at Ksh99.74 and kerosene at Ksh100.26 per litre.

The new prices will take effect from Sunday midnight and up to January 14, 2020.
