Tough Times Ahead as EPRA Hikes Fuel Prices

NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 2-Motorists in Nairobi will from midnight pay more for super petrol after the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) increased its price by Sh1.12 to retail at Sh106.55 until October 14.

In its latest review, EPRA has also increased the prices of diesel and kerosene each by Sh0.58 per litre to retail at Sh95.09 and Sh83.73 respectively.

The Authority’s Acting Director-General James Kilonzo says the change in prices comes after considering the average inflation rate of 4.94 percent for the financial year 2019/2020.

“Pursuant to Legal Notice No. 194 of 2020, the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) has adjusted upwards the Excise Duty on Super Petrol, Diesel and Kerosene after taking into account the average inflation rate of 4.94 percent for the financial year 2019/2020,” said Kilonzo.
