This means that a litre of petrol, diesel and kerosene in Nairobi will retail at Ksh106.99, Ksh96.40 and Ksh87.12 respectively.

“Taking into account the weighted average cost of imported refined petroleum products, the changes in the maximum allowed petroleum pump prices in Nairobi are as follows: Super Petrol, Diesel and Kerosene increases by Ksh0.17, Ksh4.57 and Ksh3.56 per litre respectively,” said EPRA in a statement.
