Fuel Prices Subsidies

The Energy and Petroleum Regulation Authority(EPRA) set the new retail prices of fuel in May. The retail price of Petrol is currently Ksh150.12 per litre. On the other hand, diesel retails at Ksh131 and kerosene at Ksh118.94 per litre. A rise from initial prices of Ksh150.12, Ksh125.50 and Ksh113.44 respectively.

Pump prices have hit a record high with both prices increasing by sh. 5.50 per litre. This subsequently leads to an increase in the prices of basic commodities and services.

Without the subsidy super petrol would retail at Ksh176.47 per litre with diesel and kerosene retailing at Ksh174.94 and Ksh169.26 respectively. For comparison, the average price of gasoline in the world for this period is Ksh219.36.


The Kenyan government committed to offering a subsidy scheme to pay marketers an estimated 14.59 billion.

A compensation of Sh9.02 billion from a subsidy of Sh40.24 per litre of diesel. In addition, Sh5.057 billion from Sh29.08 per litre of petrol and Sh310.87 million for kerosene are offered to marketers.

The subsidy comes under sustained pressure from a spike in global prices of crude. This increased the compensation margins for oil marketers.

Leaded gas was found to be harmful to the environment and humanity which resulted in the production of unleaded gas. You won’t find leaded gas at the pump. Nowadays its used for motor racing, heavy equipment, and marine vehicles.
It is also known as petrol or gas.

Super Petrol also known as Premium Motor Gasoline or Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) or petrol is a product derived from crude and used as fuel in internal combustion engines.
This fuel is for spark engines like car engines. In some countries, PMS is mixed with ethanol at some predetermined ratios and used as an alternative fuel. PMS is more volatile than Diesel and Kerosene because of its base constituents and additives.
The PMS marketed in Kenya conforms to the following critical parameters as set by the Kenya Bureau of Standards;
It must have a density of 15 degrees centigrade Kg/m3 of 780 maximum
It must have a Research Octane number of 91 minimum and Sulphur content of 0.15% maximum
