NAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 14 – The Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) has reduced the price of super petrol but increased those of diesel and kerosene, in its latest review to be applied for the next one month.

A litre of super petrol has gone down by Sh4.87 to retail at Sh80.71 per litre in Nairobi; diesel has gone up by Sh0.53 to Sh66.23 while kerosene went up by Sh1.81 to Sh43.96 per litre.

The decline in super petrol has been attributed to improved import costs in the month to March compared to February.

Average costs for diesel and kerosene in the month of March went up by 3.74 percent and 7.47 percent respectively.

In Mombasa, a litre of super petrol will sell at Sh77.43, diesel Sh62.98 and kerosene at Sh41.27 for the next one month.

Nakuru motorists will buy a litre of super petrol at Sh81.50, diesel Sh67.19 and kerosene at Sh44.84 while in Eldoret, super petrol will retail at Sh82.65 per litre, diesel Sh68.34 and kerosene at Sh45.87.

In Kisumu, a litre of super petrol will sell at Sh82.71, diesel at Sh68.40 and Sh45.86 for a litre of kerosene.

“The commission wishes to assure the general public of continued commitment to the observance of fair competition and protection of the interest of both consumers and investors in the energy sector,” ERC stated.
