The Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) has announced significant increase in prices of fuel effective midnight tonight. The announcement comes after what has been weeks of suffering with many Kenyans not being able to get the necessary commodity.
As it seems, with all the arguments government bodies have fronted about there being no shortage, there has been hoarding by retailers in a bid to make more money with the price increase. Proof of this will be when we see fuel being available everywhere from midnight.
In the period from April 15th to May 14th, 2022, the pump prices of Super Petrol, Diesel and Kerosene will be increasing by KES 9.90 per litre respectively. The prices are inclusive of the 8% Value Added Tax (VAT) in line with the provisions of the Finance Act 2018, the Tax Laws (Amendment) Act 2020 and the revised rates for excise duty adjusted for inflation as per Legal Notice No. 194 of 2020.
EPRA points that prices would be higher had the government not intervened. Meaning a litre of Petrol in Nairobi would have sold at KES 173.70; Diesel at KES 165.74 and Kerosene at KES 139.89.
