Kenya’s energy industry regulator on Monday hiked retail prices for diesel, super petrol and kerosene by different price margins in the latest review for August to mid-September.

The Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) said the prices of super petrol per litre will rise to 0.96 U.S. dollars, diesel to 0.86 dollars and to 0.63 dollars for kerosene, mainly used by poor homes for lighting and cooking.

ERC Acting Director-General Pavel Oimeke attributed the rise to increased global oil prices during the period of cargo importation. Enditem
