Fuel pump prices for the Oct-Nov period rise

The cost of super petrol has risen by more than Sh3/FILE

NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 14 – The cost of super petrol has risen by Sh3.37 per litre for the period starting October 15 and ending November 14.

The costs of diesel and kerosene on the other hand have gone up by Sh1.85 and Sh1.82 respectively.

“The changes in this month’s prices have been as a consequence of the average landed cost of super pertrol, diesel and kerosene,” the Energy Regulatory Commission Ag. Director General Pavel Oimeke explained.

The landed cost of super petrol, diesel and kerosene are reported to have increased by 7.42, 6.13 and 4.76 per cent respectively between August and September.

“Over the same period, the mean monthly US Dollar to Kenya Shilling exchange rate appreciated by 0.24 per cent from Sh103.37 to Sh103.12 in September,” Oimeke explained.

He did however go on to add that the consumer will enjoy savings from the reduction in pipeline loss from 0.25 per cent to 0.08 per cent.

“Accordingly, the savings per litre on account of the reduced pipeline loss are Sh0.15 on super petrol, 0.13 on diesel and 0.09 on Kerosene.”

The maximum pump price for super petrol in Mombasa has therefore been set at Sh98.39, Sh85.44 per litre of diesel, and Sh63.42 for Kerosene.

In Nairobi, a litre of super petrol will retail at Sh101.67, diesel at Sh88.71 and kerosene at Sh66.18.

In Kisumu, the retail price of super petrol has been capped at Sh103.64, diesel at Sh90.89 and kerosene at Sh68.11.
