Petrol, Diesel, Kerosene prices increase in January review


Motorists are set to dig deeper in their pockets as fuel prices are set to increase following the latest review of petroleum product prices by the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA).

“The prices are inclusive of 8% Value Added Tax (VAT) in line with provisions of the Finance Act 2018,” said EPRA in a statement on Tuesday.

The price of super petrol will increase by Ksh.0.70, Diesel by Ksh.0.54 while Kerosene will retail at Ksh.1.64 more per litre.

According to EPRA, the changes are a consequence of the increase in the average landed cost of imported Super Petrol, Diesel and Kerosene.

The new prices will be in force from January 15 to February 14, 2020.
