At the stroke of midnight motorists will pay a shilling and sixty-four cents less for a liter of super petrol after the energy regulatory commission announced reductions in pump prices.
A liter of diesel will be cheaper by two shilling and forty-three cents while kerosene will be lower by two shillings and forty-eight cents.
The Energy Regulatory Commission attributes the reduced pump prices to lower average landed cost of petroleum products as reduced pipeline losses.
Acting Director General Pavel Oimeke says the commission used a pipeline loss factor of 0.02 percent in computing pump prices, down from the previous 0.25 percent.
This has saved 19 cents for super petrol customers, 16 cents for diesel users and 12 cents for kerosene users.
Based on this fuel will be cheapest in Mombasa where a liter of Super Petrol will retail at 93 shillings and 87 cents, diesel at 81 shillings and 24 cents while kerosene will be 59 shillings and 83 cents.
In Nairobi, a liter of Super Petrol will retail at 97 shillings and 10 cents, diesel at 84 shillings and 46 cents while kerosene will be 62 shillings and 56 cents.
Fuel will be most expensive in Mandera where a liter of Super Petrol will retail at 110 shillings and 91 cents, diesel at 98 shillings and 27 cents while kerosene will be 76 shillings and 26 cents.
