The price of fuel has gone up in new reviews announced Tuesday by the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA).
Super Petrol price has increased by 70 cents, Diesel has gone up by 54 cents, whereas Kerosene’s price has gone up by 1 shilling and 54 cents.
EPRA says the changes in the new reviews “are a consequence of the average landed cost of imported Super Petrol increasing by 2.21% from US$ 460.83 per cubic metre in November 2019 to US$ 471.01 per cubic metre in December 2019; Diesel increasing by 1.73% from US$ 485.29 per cubic metre to US$ 493.68 per cubic metre and Kerosene increasing by 5.75% from US$ 481.11 per cubic metre to US$ 508.77 per cubic metre”.
