Fuel prices hit record high as subsidy removed in Kenya

Published
Fuel prices have risen once again in Kenya after the government partially removed subsidies that cushioned consumers from the global hike in oil prices.

The energy regulator said late on Wednesday night that it had removed the subsidy for super petrol while retaining a smaller subsidy for diesel and kerosene.

At the new prices, super petrol – mostly used by private motorists – will now cost about 179 shillings ($1.5) a litre, up from 1.3 dollars while diesel, which is used by transporters and industries will cost about 1.4 dollars in the capital, Nairobi.
