Kenya energy industry regulator increases pump price retail fuel

NAIROBI (Xinhua) -- Kenya’s energy industry regulator on Tuesday increased the retail pump prices for super petrol, diesel, and kerosene by different price margins, effective starting May 15.

The Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) said in a statement that super petrol, diesel and kerosene will rise by 5.43 shillings (0.0543 U.S. dollar), 2.24 shillings and 2.4 shillings per liter, respectively.

Robert Pavel Oimeke, director general for EPRA said the prices of super petrol will rise to 1.12 dollars while 1.04 dollars will be the maximum allowed pump price for diesel and kerosene.

Oimeke added that the upward price adjustment is due to an increase in the average landed cost of imported petroleum products into the country in April.

The Free on Board price of Murban crude oil in April was 73.05 dollars per barrel, an increase of 6.49 percent from 68.6 dollars in March.
