Motorists will, therefore, buy super Petrol at Sh98.73 per litre, diesel at Sh86.89 per litre and Sh65.05 per litre.

ERC has attributed the changes in prices to the decrease in the average landed cost of the imported super petrol decreased by 0.77 percent to US$564.53 per ton.

At the same time, diesel decreased by 2.52 percent to US$481.30 percent and a 0.15 percent decrease in kerosene.

In Mombasa, a litre of Super petrol will be sold at Sh95.47, diesel Sh83.63 and Kerosene Sh62.29 for the next one month.

Nakuru motorists will pay Sh99.47 for Super Petrol, Sh87.83 for diesel and Sh65.92 for kerosene per litre.

Residents in Eldoret will part with Sh99.47 per litre of Super Petrol, Sh87.83 for diesel and Sh65.92 for kerosene.

Kisumu motorists, on the other hand, will part with Sh100.72 per litre for super petrol, Sh89.08 for diesel and Sh66.98 for kerosene.

“Over the same period, the mean monthly US dollar – Kenya shilling exchange rate appreciated by 0.01 percent from Sh103.33 per dollar in April, to Sh103.31 per dollar in May,” ERC says in a statement.
