In Nairobi, super petrol will continue to retail at 159.12 shillings, diesel at 140.00 shillings, and kerosene at 127.94 shillings per liter respectively. The decision comes at a time millions of Kenyans are planning to travel from upcountry where they had gone to vote.
Here is a statement from EPRA:
EPRA stated that the government would utilize the Petroleum Development Levy (PDL) to cushion consumers from otherwise high prices.
“The average landed cost of imported super petrol increased by 2.99 percent from $1042.85 per cubic meter in June 2022 to $1074.01 per cubic meter in July 2022; Diesel increased by 8.22 percent from $1019.29 per cubic meter to $1103.03 per cubic meter while kerosene increased by 14.90 percent from $967.42 per cubic meter to $1111.53 per cubic meter,” said EPRA in a statement.
