The cost of super petrol and diesel has gone down by Sh2.86 and Sh3.28 per litre respectively in the latest fuel review by the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA).
Users of kerosene will, however, pay more for the product as it’s cost has increased by Sh1.98 per litre.
According to EPRA, the drop-in fuel prices has been occasioned by the average landed cost of imported super petrol decreasing by 5.64 percent from US$528.26 per cubic metre in July 2019 to US$498.46 per cubic metre in July 2019.
The average landed cost of imported super petrol had decreased by 1.83 per cent from US$538.08 per cubic metre in May 2019 to US$528.26 per cubic metre in June 2019.
