RUTO responds to public outrage by lowering diesel and kerosene prices – Look! RAILA no longer has anything to ‘poison’ Kenyans with.


In its most recent assessment, the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) cut diesel and kerosene costs while retaining petrol pricing.

The energy regulator said on Tuesday that the price of gasoline will remain unchanged for the month of November.

Diesel, which is usually used by factories and big commercial vehicles, will cost Ksh203.47 at the pump, while kerosene would cost Ksh203.06.

“In the period under review, the maximum allowed petroleum pump price for Super Petrol remains unchanged while that of Diesel and Kerosene decreased by Ksh2.00 per litre,” the petroleum regulator said.

“The prices are inclusive of the 16 per cent Value Added Tax (VAT) in line with the provisions of the Finance Act 2023, the Tax Laws (Amendment) Act 2020 and the revised rates for excise duty adjusted for inflation as per Legal Notice No. 194 of 2020.”

Nairobi motorists will pay Ksh217.36, Ksh203.47, and Ksh203.06 for Petrol, Diesel, and Kerosene, respectively.

Petrol, Diesel, and Kerosene will be priced at Ksh214.30, Ksh200.41, and Ksh199.99 in Mombasa, respectively.

Petrol in Nakuru will cost Ksh216.35, diesel Ksh202.88, and kerosene Ksh202.46, according to EPRA.

Eldoret motorists will pay Ksh217.12, Ksh203.65, and Ksh203.22 for the three items, respectively.

Lokitaung, Lomut, Lodwar, Kakuma, Lokichar, Kalokol, Lokori, Lokichogio, Kibish, Nakale, Korr, Marsabit, Garissa, Isiolo, Moyale, Wajir, and Kolacha will pay between Ksh220 and Ksh227 for fuel.

The current evaluation comes as Kenyans press President William Ruto’s administration to reduce the cost of living amid job cutbacks and a freeze, which have driven millions further into poverty.

Critics have chastised the administration for raising fuel prices in the country, despite global crude prices falling to their lowest level in months.
