Due to the removal of fuel subsidies that were put in place by former president Uhuru Kenyatta by the new administration, Kenyans have moaned about the high fuel prices in the past months.

The subsidies, as stated by William Ruto, the President, would be removed by his administration since they cost the taxpayers billions.

On September 13,2022 Ruto attested that in the case that the subsidies continues to the end of the year, the cost born by taxpayers will be Ksh280 billion, amount comparable to the whole national development budget.

Ever since the removal of the subsidies, Ksh14.7 billion of taxpayers' money has been saved.

In September 2022, fuel prices reached the highest price ever with Super petrol,Diesel and Kerosene retailing at Ksh179.30, Ksh165 and Ksh147.94 respectively.

In some regions of the country, a liter of petrol costed Ksh250, attributing the high prices to severe shortages in the country.
