NAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 14 – Kenyans will pay less for super petrol but more for diesel and kerosene following the latest review by the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC).
The ERC announced that the price of super petrol will decrease by Sh0.11 a litre across the country for the next month, while diesel will be Sh1.28 higher. Kerosene will increase by Sh1.46 per litre.
In Nairobi a litre of petrol will retail at Sh89.35 a litre, diesel will retail at Sh77.48 a litre and kerosene will retail at Sh57.21.
In Mombasa super petrol will go for Sh86.04 while diesel and kerosene will retail at Sh74.21 and Sh54.49 respectively.

“The purpose of the fuel pricing regulations is to cap the pump prices of the products which are already in the country, such that the importation and other prudently incurred costs are recovered, while ensuring reasonable prices to consumers,” ERC said.
The commission has installed a hotline number 0708 444 000 for people to report any fuel marketing companies that operate above the maximum allowable prices.
