Kenyans will have to dig deeper into their pockets after the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) announced an increase in fuel prices.

The energy regulator has increased super petrol, diesel and kerosene prices by Ksh5 per litre.

In a statement issued in Nairobi, EPRA said that the prices increased due to the average landed cost of the fuel products that also went up.

“The average landed cost of imported Super Petrol increased by 1.46 per cent from USD 814.85 per cubic metre in March 2022 to USD826.77per cubic metre in April 2022 ; Diesel increased by 6.49 per cent from USD 844.57 per cubic metre to USD 899.36 per cubic metre while Kerosene increased by 31.13 per cent from USD 692.95 per cubic metre to USD908.66 per cubic metre,” Epra said in a statement.

EPRA, however, said the Government will utilise the Petroleum Development Levy to cushion consumers from the otherwise high prices

Following the increase, a litre of super petrol, diesel, and kerosene in Nairobi will now retail at Ksh150.12, diesel Ksh131 and kerosene Ksh118.94.

In Mombasa, a litre of petrol will be sold at Ksh147.86, diesel Ksh128.76 and kerosene Ksh116.69.

In Kisumu, a litre of petrol will go for Ksh150.53; diesel Ksh131.70 and kerosene Ksh119.66.

The prices announced will be in force from 15th May to 14th June 2022.
