ERC announces reduced prices of fuel in new review

The Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) has announced a decrease in fuel prices with super petrol going down by Sh3.06.

In the April price review, households that use kerosene to cook and light will pay Sh3.58 less per litre.

The price of diesel also went down by Sh1.82 per litre in the new pump prices.

In a statement released Friday, the commission said that the reduction in prices was due to a drop in the average landed cost of imported super petrol, diesel and kerosene.

Super petrol will retail at Sh98 per litre in Nairobi while diesel will go for Sh88.62 per litre.

Kerosene will retail at a maximum of Sh64.38 per litre in Nairobi.

The new prices will take effect on mid-night Friday till May 14 when the next price review will be done.
