The Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) has announced a drop in fuel prices in the latest review for the period between Friday, October 15 and Sunday, November 14.
In the statement issued by EPRA on Thursday, October 14, 2021, prices of petrol and diesel dropped by Ksh5 and kerosene dropped by Ksh7.28 per litre.
In Nairobi, petrol will retail at Ksh129.72, diesel price at Ksh110.60 while Kerosene at Ksh103.54.
In Mombasa County, petrol will retail at Ksh127.46, diesel at Ksh108.36 and kerosene will sell at Ksh101.29.
The drop in fuel prices comes as a huge relief for Kenyans after fuel costs hit historical highs in the month of September 2021.
“Despite the increase in landed costs, the applicable pump prices for this cycle have been reduced. The government will utilize the Petroleum Development Levy to cushion consumers from the otherwise high prices,” part of the statement by EPRA read.
New fuel prices for the next 30 days.
During the September review of pump prices by EPRA, the price of petrol was raised by Ksh.7.58 per litre while the cost of diesel and kerosene rose by Ksh.7.94 and Ksh.12.97 per litre.
From September 14, a litre of petrol in Nairobi was retailing at Ksh.134.72, diesel for Ksh115 and Kerosene retailed at Ksh110.2
