Motorists will have to adjust their budgets to accommodate the new fuel prices released by the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA), which will be in force from 15th February 2020 to 14th March 2020.
The authority increased the prices of super petrol and diesel by Ksh2.67 per litre and Ksh2.13 per litre, respectively, but kerosene prices decreased by Ksh1.26 per litre.
Following the adjustments, super petrol will retail at Ksh112.87 in Nairobi while diesel and kerosene will retail at Ksh104.45 and Ksh106.69, respectively.
In Mombasa, a litre of super petrol, diesel and kerosene will now retail at Ksh110.40, Ksh101.98 andKsh100.21, while in Kisumu a litre of super petrol will retail at Ksh113.58, diesel Ksh105.37 and kerosene at Ksh103.61.
”The changes in this month’s prices are a consequence of the average landed cost of imported super petrol increasing by 3.91 percent from $471.01 per cubic metre in December 2019 to $489.44 per cubic metre in January 2020.
“Diesel increased by 2.68 percent from $493.68 per cubic metre to $506.92 per cubic metre and kerosene decreased by 2.64 percent from $508.77 per cubic metre to $495.32 per cubic metre,” EPRA said in a statement.
