Petrol and Diesel Prices Reduced by Ksh.5

The Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) announced a notable reduction in the prices of super petrol and diesel by Ksh.5 on Sunday.

According to a statement from EPRA, starting January 15 and continuing over the next month, kerosene will also see a decrease of Ksh.4.82 in its retail price.

Consequently, in Nairobi, super petrol will now be available at Ksh.207.36 cents per litre, and diesel will be priced at Ksh.196.47 per litre. Kerosene, on the other hand, will be sold at Ksh.194.23 per litre.

Similarly, in Mombasa, super petrol will retail at Ksh.204.30 cents per litre, while diesel will be priced at Ksh.193.41, and kerosene will cost Ksh.191.05 per litre.

EPRA attributed this decline in prices to the average landed cost of imported super petrol, which decreased by 2.40 per cent between November and December of the previous year. During the same period, diesel witnessed a decrease of 9.06 per cent, while kerosene dropped by 4.33 per cent.

“The average landed cost of imported super petrol decreased by 2.40% from US$694.44 per cubic metre in November 2023 to US$677.78 per cubic metre in December 2023; diesel decreased by 9.06% from US$826.01 per cubic metre to US$751.15 per cubic metre while kerosene decreased by 4.33% from US$759.93 per cubic metre to US$727.00 per cubic metre,” explained EPRA.
