Kenyans to breathe easy after EPRA leaves petroleum prices unchanged

NAIROBI, Kenya, Jul 14 – Kenyans have been spared from paying extra for petroleum commodities after the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority left the prices unchanged in its latest review.

For the next one month, users will therefore continue to pay Sh127.14 for a litre of super petrol, Sh107.66 for a litre of diesel and Sh97.85 for a litre of kerosene in Nairobi.

In Mombasa, residents will pay Sh124.72 for a litre of super petrol, Sh105.27 for a litre of diesel and Sh95.46 for a litre of kerosene.

Those in Nakuru will pay Sh126.75 for a litre of super petrol, Sh107.55 for a litre of diesel and Sh97.76 for a litre of kerosene.

Super petrol will retail at Sh127.67 per litre in Eldoret and Kisumu while diesel and kerosene will cost Sh108.46 and Sh98.68 per litre.

The Authority’s Director General Daniel Bargoria says the prices are a consequence of a 4.84 percent increase in the cost of imported super petrol from US$ 496.1 per cubic metre in May to US520.04 in June.

Diesel increased by 3.69 percent from US$461.95 per cubic metre to US$479.01 per cubic metre.

“In the period under review, no kerosene vessel was discharged at the port of Mombasa,” the director general said.

The prices are inclusive of the 8 percent Value Added Tax that is in line with the provisions of the Finance Act 2018, the Tax laws Act 2020 and the revised rates for excite duty adjusted for inflation.
