NAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 14 – Fuel consumers will be forced to dig dipper into their pockets following another increase in the latest price review by the Energy Regulatory Commission.

The new rates that will be effective midnight on Sunday have seen super petrol go up by Sh2.20, diesel Sh1.27 while kerosene is up by Sh1.03.

In Nairobi, super petrol will retail at Sh95.13 per litre, diesel at Sh84.51 per litre while kerosene increases to Sh62.48 per litre.

“The changes in this month’s prices are a consequence of the average landed cost of imported super petrol increasing by 3.31 percent in July 2016, diesel increased by 3.18 percent and kerosene increased by 2.86 percent,” ERC Director General Joseph Ng’ang’a said in a statement.

In Mombasa, a litre of super petrol will retail at Sh91.72, diesel at Sh81.12 and kerosene at Sh59.64 while in Nakuru a litre of super petrol will retail at Sh95.89 while that of diesel will retail at Sh85.45 and kerosene will retail at Sh63.36.

In Eldoret a litre of super petrol will retail at Sh97.07, diesel at Sh86.63 and kerosene at Sh64.43, while in Kisumu a litre of super petrol will retail at Sh97.14 while that of diesel will retail at Sh86.70. Kerosene will retail at Sh64.43.

Last month the government introduced the additional road maintenance levy into fuel products of Sh6 per litre that saw super petrol go up by Sh6.67, diesel Sh9.53 while kerosene went up by Sh3.41.

This is part of the government plans to raise Sh60 billion annually from the levy, up from Sh40 billion to maintain the existing roads.
