The prices of super petrol, diesel and kerosene will remain unchanged for the next one month up to May 14 when next review is due, the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (Epra).
In a statement released on Wednesday afternoon, Epra said that the pump prices announced in March will remain in force until the next review.
Currently, a litre of petrol is retailing at Sh122.81 in Nairobi while diesel is being sold at Sh017.66, with the same amount of kerosene selling at Sh97.85.
The announcement by Epra comes as a relief to motorists and commuters as it had been anticipated that there would be a rise in fuel prices due to rising crude oil costs.
It had been anticipated that the price of petrol would increase by Sh4.30 to Sh127.11 per litre in Nairobi while diesel was expected to rise from Sh107.66 to Sh109.96. This would have seen the prices rise to the highest level since December 2018.
