Fuel prices in Kenya remain unchanged in the latest monthly price review by the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA).

The Petroleum Development Levy (PDL) remains in place to cushion consumers from the high fuel prices. A litre of Super Petrol has been subsidised by Ksh54.91, Diesel by Ksh66.17 and Kerosene by Ksh74.17.

The price of Super Petrol, Diesel and Kerosene will remain unchanged at Ksh159.12, Ksh140.00 and Ksh127.94 per litre respectively in Nairobi. In Mombasa, the maximum pump prices will be Ksh156.86, Ksh137.76 and Ksh125.69 respectively.

Maximum pump prices in Nakuru for Super Petrol, Diesel and Kerosene will be Ksh158.64, Ksh139.83 and Ksh127.79 per litre respectively. They will be Ksh159.53, Ksh140.7 and Ksh128.66 per litre respectively in Kisumu.
