IT'S A MIXED BAG AS PETROL PRICES RISE BUT DIESEL, KEROSENE DROP.


The prices of Super Petrol has gone up by Ksh 4.06 per liter to trade at Ksh 102.56 in Nairobi, Ksh 99.32 in Mombasa and Ksh 116.46 in Mandera and its environs as  announced by The Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) yesterday.

However, the prices of Diesel went down by Ksh 1.21 per liter to trade at Ksh 83.35 in Nairobi, Ksh 80.06 in Mombasa and Ksh 97.16 in Mandera.

The prices of Kerosene also went down significantly with every liter now trading at Ksh 4.76 less. In Nairobi, Kerosene will retail at Ksh 57.98 per liter, Ksh 55.25 in Mombasa while Mandera will register the highest prices at Ksh 71.79 per liter.

The new prices took account of a Ksh 3 increment per liter in the pricing of Super Petrol and Diesel to cover for the enhanced Roads Maintenance Levy announced in this year’s budget, according to Joseph Ng’ang’a, the ERC Director General.

The average landed cost of imported Super Petrol went up 1.25% from USD 718.97 per ton in June to USD 727.97 in July this year as that of Diesel and Kerosene went down by 8.90% and 11.74% respectively to stand at USD 556.55 per ton for Diesel and USD 546.52 per ton for Kerosene.
