The Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) has released the maximum retail prices of petroleum products, which will be in force from Thursday to January 14, 2022.
In the period under review, the pump prices of Super Petrol, Diesel and Kerosene remain the same.
The prices are inclusive of the 8% Value Added Tax (VAT) in line with the provisions of the Finance Act 2018, the Tax Laws (Amendment) Act 2020 and the revised rates- for excise duty adjusted for inflation as per Legal Notice No. 194 of 2020.
The prices of pump prices have remained constant for three months running despite the increase in the landing costs of petroleum products.
The average landed cost of imported Super Petrol increased by 3.59% from US$ 606.06 per cubic metre in October 2021 to US$ 627.80 per cubic metre in November 2021; Diesel increased by 6.98% from US$ 561.06 per cubic metre to US$ 600.22 per cubic metre while Kerosene increased by 15.78% from US$ 522.06 per cubic metre to US$ 604.43 per cubic metre.
The government will utilise the Petroleum Development Levy to cushion consumers from the pinch of high costs of fuel.
