From today petrol, diesel and paraffin cost more in Kenya.
The increase was decided by the National Petroleum and Energy Regulatory Authority (EPRA) which from Monday 15 February to midnight increased the price of super petrol by 8-19 shillings per litre, diesel by 5.51 and paraffin by 5.32 shillings per litre.
EPRA justified the increase with the new prices of imported super petrol, which was 20.9% higher than in December 2020, costing about $391 per cubic metre, compared to $323 last year. Diesel (13.6%) and paraffin (14.6%) also saw smaller but still significant increases.
In the same period, and this should not be underestimated, the monthly exchange rate between the US dollar and the Kenyan shilling fell slightly (0.57%) to 109.89 compared to 110.52 in December 2020.
On the strength of these changes, as of today, super petrol in Mombasa will be sold at Kes. 112.78 per litre, while in Nairobi it will cost Kes. 115.18. Diesel will be found at Kes. 99.52 in Mombasa and 101.91 in the Capital, paraffin at 90.5 and 92.44 respectively.
