NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 14 – Kenyans will from tomorrow pay slightly more for petroleum products following the increase in fuel prices by Energy Regulatory Commission.

ERC Acting Director General Pavel Oimeke credits the rise to an increase in landed cost of imported super Petrol which increased by 2.23 percent to US588.47. Diesel increased by 3.84 percent to US520 and kerosene by 3.45 percent US542.27.

“Landed Costs includes so many things that include pipeline transport, road transport, pipeline losses and depot losses among others. Those hardest hit are those living further away from Mombasa.”

In Mombasa, residents will pay Sh97.63 per litre of petrol, Sh87.04 per litre for diesel and Sh65.11 per litre for kerosene.
