Sigh Of Relief For Kenyans After New Petrol Prices Are Proposed

The increase in the prices of fuel across the country had caused a public uproar as Kenyans complained of the high cost of living. The increase in taxes on fuel led to the subsequent increase in the prices of fuel. However, Kenyans can now breath a sigh of relief after the Petroleum regulation board of Kenya ratified the current prices of petroleum in Kenya.

According to a report by Citizen TV Kenya, petrol will cost ksh 124.33 in Nairobi in the new proposal. This will be a sharp reduction of more than ksh 10 from the current retail price of ksh 135.00.

The new proposals are coming after several calls from politicians and other influential Kenyans on the government to ratify the fuel prices. Retired prime minister Raila Odinga had promised Kenyans that the prices would go down in one weeks time after noting the extent to which the increment had affected the lives of ordinary Kenyans.
