Kenyans now have to dig deeper into their pockets to afford a trip to the pump after the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) has reviewed the retail prices for petroleum products for the period September 15, 2021, to October 14, 2021.
EPRA reviewed the pump prices upwards, hitting a new high as Kenyans are facing one of the hardest economic times occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The maximum allowed petroleum pump prices in Nairobi has increased by Sh7.58 per litre for Super Petrol, Sh7.94 per litre for Diesel and Sh12.97 per litre for Kerosene.
