Households who use kerosene are the hardest hit in the latest fuel review by the Energy Regulatory Commission that has revised up the retail cost of a liter of paraffin by 90 cents.
Super petrol is down by Sh0.46 to now retail at 107.46 while diesel will retail at Sh97.86 while Kerosene hits Sh77.45 in Nairobi which is the mean average of fuel prices.
“The purpose of the fuel pricing regulations is to cap the pump prices of the products which are already in the country so that the importation and other prudently incurred costs are recovered, while ensuring reasonable prices to consumers,” said ERC Director General Robert Oimeke.
Oimeke adds that the improved efficiencies in the pipeline have saved consumers Sh0.16 per super petrol.
Those in Mombasa will buy fuel at the cheapest rate with a liter of super petrol costing KES 104.18, diesel at KES 94.59 and kerosene retailing at KES 74.69.
In Nairobi, you will pay KES 107.46 for a liter of super petrol, KES 97.86 for diesel and kerosene KES 77.45.
In Kisumu, a liter of super petrol will cost you KES 109.40, diesel KES 100.01 and kerosene at KES 79.35.
Fuel will be most expensive in Mandera with a liter of super petrol costing KES 121.27, diesel at KES 111.67 and kerosene retailing at KES 91.26.
