Kenyans will have to dig deeper into their pockets following the fuel price increase as announced by EPRA on Thursday.
The prices which are to take effect from Friday 15th November to 14 December will see all petroleum products go up at the pumps.
Announcing the new changes, EPRA said the increase has been attributed to the landing cost going up for Diesel, Petroleum, and Kerosene.
