Freight charges climbed by 20% in February, adding to the 16% VAT sting that will be reinstated in July 2021.

The government has relied on a subsidy program to keep Kerosene, Petrol, and Diesel costs low.

According to the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA), if the subsidy had not been in place, the price of a liter of diesel in Nairobi would have risen to a record high of Ksh133.89 a liter in February.
