As per today's report, the cost of one litre of petrol has increased up to Sh. 179.30 in the Kenyan capital city, the county of Nairobi, the highest price ever witnessed since Kenya began regulating pump prices in the year 2010.
The price of diesel and that kerosene in Nairobi have remained unchanged for the third month in a row, at Sh162 per litre and Sh145.94 per litre, respectively, according to the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (Epra).
