14th November 2016

Petroleum pump prices for the period 15 November to 14 December 2016

ERC today announced the petroleum pump prices that will be in force from 15th November to 14th December 2016. The maximum prices for Super Petrol, Diesel and Kerosene have been calculated in accordance with Legal Notice No.196 of 2010, the Energy (Petroleum Pricing) Regulations and the amendment thereof.

The purpose of the fuel pricing regulations is to cap the pump prices of the products which are already in the country, so that importation and other prudently incurred costs are recovered, while ensuring reasonable prices to consumers.

The changes in this month’s prices have been as a consequence of the average landed cost of imported Super Petrol increasing by 8.12% from US$ 479.33 per ton in September 2016 to US$ 518.23 per ton in October 2016. The average landed cost of Diesel increased from US$ 435.40 per ton to US$ 435.46 per ton and Kerosene increased by 10.68% from US$ 433.07 per ton to US$ 479.30 per ton.

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 increases by KShs 3.38 per litre, Diesel increases by KShs 0.05 per litre while Kerosene increases by KShs 3.45 per litre.
