Kenyan motorists will have to dig deeper into their pockets to fill their tanks as the Energy and Petroleum Regulation Authority (EPRA) announced new rates effective from July 15- August 14.

In a statement to newsrooms, EPRA Director General, Robert Oimeke said the rise is as a result of the average landed cost of imported petroleum products.

Additionally, he attributed the rise to the depreciation of the Kenyan shilling against the US dollar by 0.68% from sh 101.2 per dollar in May to sh 101.89 per dollar in June.

A liter of super petrol will increase by sh 0.29 while diesel and kerosene will decrease by sh 0.88 and 2.31 respectively.

In Nairobi, a liter of super petrol will now cost sh 115.39, a liter of kerosene will go for sh 103.88 while a liter of kerosene will cost sh 101.97.

In Mombasa, a liter of super petrol will cost sh 112.74 with diesel and kerosene set to cost sh 101.25 and sh 99.39 respectively.

The last time the prices of fuel increased was in June when super petrol and diesel increased by sh 3.07 and sh 0.39 respectively while the price of kerosene decreased by sh 0.34 per liter.
