Petrol Prices Up by KSh 0.77; Kerosene, Diesel Unchanged in June

Core consumer prices in Kenya are likely to rise at a faster rate on surging fuel costs caused by the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict.

Petrol price in Kenya was hiked by KSh 0.77 per litre in the latest fuel prices review on Monday.

The Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) said Kerosene and diesel prices remain unchanged.

The changes take effect from midnight of 15th June 2021 to 14th July 2021 inclusive of the 8 per cent VAT in line with the provisions of the Finance Act 2018, the Tax Laws Act 2020 and the revised rates for excise duty adjusted for inflation as per Legal Notice No. 194 of 2020.

With the change, super petrol will now retail at Sh127.14 in Nairobi, Sh124.72 in Mombasa and Sh127.67 in Kisumu.

The hike is a consequence of a 1.52 per cent increase in the cost of imported super petrol from US$488.69 per cubic metre in April to US$496.1.
