Last month, petrol, diesel and kerosene prices went up by Sh5.43, Sh2.24 and Sh2.40 per litre, respectively, in Nairobi.

During the same period, the rise in fuel prices has been linked to the rise in the cost of petrol, diesel and kerosene affecting crude oil in the international market.

The international oil price is high due to the worn times between the oil rich countries in Middle East as of last month.

The matter has escalated as a result of continued sanctions by US on Iran.
