After the jump last month of over KES 20 in fuel prices, Kenyans expected a reprieve for the October – November period. Well, the Energy & Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) has announced the new changes with a decrease of KES 1 for Petrol, KES 2 for Diesel and KES 1 for Kerosene.
EPRA says they’re still maintaining a KES 18.15/litre and KES 27.47/litre subsidy for Diesel and Kerosene respectively in order to cushion consumers from the otherwise high prices. The official announcement says the Government will use the Petroleum Development Levy to compensate oil marketing companies for the difference in cost.
The new prices apply between today 15th October 2022 and 14th November 2022 when the prices will be re-evaluated.
