Kenya Raises Gasoline Prices by 1.1% From Tomorrow on Imported-Oil Costs
Kenya raised the cost of so-called super petrol, the most commonly used gasoline in the East African country, by 1.1 percent to 117.2 shillings a liter in the capital, Nairobi.
The increase is effective from tomorrow until Sept.14, the Energy Regulatory Commission said in an e-mailed statement today. The higher price follows a 1.6 percent increase in imported oil costs, it said.
Kenyan inflation accelerated for the ninth straight month in July to 15.53 percent on rising fuel and food costs.
