NAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 14 – Fuel consumers will have a sigh of relief following the latest price review by the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC).

The new rates that will be effective midnight on Thursday have seen super petrol decrease by Sh3.74, diesel Sh2.05 while kerosene is down by Sh3.38 per litre.

In Nairobi, super petrol will retail at Sh91.39 per litre, diesel at Sh82.46 per litre while kerosene down to Sh59.10 per litre.

“The changes in this month’s prices are a consequence of the average landed cost of imported super petrol decreasing by 8.86 percent in August 2016, diesel decreasing by 5.95 percent and kerosene decreased by 8.52 percent,” ERC Director General Joseph Ng’ang’a said in a statement.

In Mombasa, a litre of super petrol will retail at Sh87.99, diesel at Sh79.08 and kerosene at Sh56.27 while in Nakuru a litre of super petrol will retail at Sh92.17 while that of diesel will retail at Sh83.41 and kerosene will retail at Sh59.99.

In Eldoret a litre of super petrol will retail at Sh93.35, diesel at Sh84.59 and kerosene at Sh61.06, while in Kisumu a litre of super petrol will retail at Sh93.42 while that of diesel will retail at Sh84.65. Kerosene will retail at Sh61.06.

“The commission wishes to assure the general public of its continued commitment to the observance of a fair competition and protection of the interest of both the consumers and investors in the energy sector. In this respect consumers are requested to be vigilant in reporting non compliant retailers to the authority for necessary action,” Ng’ang’a noted.
