Historical: The Fuel Price to Expect After Midnight

Wednesday midnight is going to be on history following the increase in fuel price to the highest level in Kenya's history, following a review by the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority ( EPRA) which has seen the price of petrol rise by Ksh 20.12 within the last three months.

The new prices after midnight will be as follows;

Petrol will rise by Ksh 4.30, selling at Ksh 127.11 per liter.

Diesel will rise by Ksh 2.30 hence selling at Ksh 109.96 per liter.

Kerosine will rise by Ksh 3.60, thereby selling at Ksh 101.96.

These are the new prices that will add on the burden to Kenyans who are currently struggling, due to economic challenges and loss of jobs caused by the covid-19 pandemic.

Even though the previous review caused a public uproar, something expected to happen tomorrow, EPRA has defended itself by saying that the increase in fuel prices is a result of the increased cost of crude oil which now goes for $ 62.61.

It will be very unfortunate for Kenyans being aware that fuel prices contribute to the change of every other commodity in the country and its impact is felt by every Kenyan, including those in rural, this with vehicles and those who don't.

What do you think the government should do to reduce the fuel price despite crude oil's higher cost?
