Fuel prices have been on a gradual decline in the past few months and are now retailing below the Ksh200 mark.

However, some towns will still be paying more than Ksh200 for fuel. Some of these areas are Nakalale, Lokichogio, Marsabit, Moyale and Wajir among others.

Tuesday’s announcement was the second month running that EPRA was cutting fuel prices after the previous review which saw Kenyans pay Ksh193.84 for a litre of Petrol, Ksh180.38 per litre of Diesel and Ksh170.06 for a litre of Kerosene.

Additionally, global prices had declined for two consecutive weeks according to a Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) weekly report.

“International oil prices declined during the week ending May 8, supported by balanced oil demand and supply, and build-up of oil inventories amid increased geopolitical uncertainties,” read part of the weekly report.
