The regulator further decreased the price of super petrol by Sh1.64, diesel by Sh2.43 and kerosene by Sh2.48 per litre.

“Average landed cost of imported Super Petrol decreased by 4.68 percent diesel by 5.69 percent and kerosene decreased by 5.69 percent,” ERC says.

Starting midnight, motorists in Nairobi will buy super Petrol at Sh97.10 per litre, diesel at Sh84.46 per litre and Sh62.56 per litre while in Mombasa, a litre of Super petrol will be sold at Sh93.87, diesel Sh81.24 and Kerosene Sh59.83 for the next one month.
