Kenyans pay more for fuel amid Ukraine war

Kenyans will from Tuesday pay more for fuel as the Russian invasion of Ukraine continues to affect the price of crude oil and refined products.

The East African country’s petroleum regulator said the price of petrol and diesel will increase by five Kenyan shillings ($0.044: £0.034)

The fuel prices regulator said the price of kerosene, which is used in many poor Kenyan households to cook, “remains unchanged”.

Kenya’s petroleum subsidy programme has kept fuel prices unchanged for four months in a row.

After Russia invaded Ukraine, Brent crude oil hit a 14-year high. The price of essential commodities is expected to go up in the East African country.
