MOTORISTS will be relieved of escalating fuel costs following the reduction in pump prices for petrol, diesel and kerosene, by an average of two per cent starting on Wednesday.
Energy and Water Utilities Regulatory Authority (EWURA) announced yesterday that prices for petrol have gone down by 0.41 per cent or 9/- a litre, across the country. Also the prices of diesel and kerosene decreased by 2.02 per cent or 42/- and 1.94 per cent or 40/- a litre respectively.
“The price decreases have been attributed to appreciation of the shilling against the US dollar and the decrease of premium and freight costs,” EWURA said in a statement. The new cap pump prices per litre in brackets are for Dar es Salaam petrol (2,179/-), diesel (2,041/-) and kerosene (2,028/-).
