15 August 2016, Nairobi – Petrol, diesel and kerosene prices will increase tonight by Sh2.20, Sh1.27 and Sh1.03 a litre respectively despite a 9 per cent drop in crude prices, the Energy Regulatory Commission has said.
The new prices for Nairobi are Sh95.13, Sh84.51 and Sh62.48 a litre for petrol, diesel and kerosene respectively.
The ERC attributed the higher prices on the delay between order and delivery which led to the country using June stock instead of July’s whose prices were much lower.
The prices of fuel had spiked in July following an increase in fuel taxes.
