The cost of super petrol and diesel have been reduced, the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) has announced.

In a statement issued on Thursday, October 14, EPRA said the maximum allowed petroleum pump prices in Nairobi for both petrol and diesel have decreased.

"The maximum allowed petroleum pump prices in Nairobi for Super pEtrol and Diesel decrease by Ksh5.00 per litre while that of Kerosene decreases by Ksh7.28 per litre," the statement by EPRA read in part.

According to the regulatory authority, the purpose of the Petroleum Pricing Regulations is to cap the retail prices of petroleum products that are already in the country so that importation and other prudently incurred costs are recovered while ensuring reasonable prices to consumers.

In Mombasa, petrol will sell at Ksh127.46 per litre, diesel at Ksh108.36 and Kerosene at 101.29.

Petrol will sell at Ksh129.72 in Nairobi, diesel at Ksh110.60 and kerosene at Ksh103.54.

In Nakuru, petrol will retail at Ksh129.24, diesel at 110.43 and kerosene at Ksh103.39.

EPRA also said that petrol in Eldoret will retail at Ksh130.13, diesel at Ksh11.32 and kerosene at Ksh104.27.

In Kisumu, petrol will retail at Ksh 130.12, diesel at Ksh11.30 and kerosene at Ksh104.26.
