There is an ongoing scam at fueling stations where motorists get less fuel than what they pay for. Fuel retailers are said to be manipulating prices at the pump to steal from the drivers.
Fuel stations indicate the recommended prices on their billboards, but the price at the pump remains a bit higher than the one recommended by the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA).
Hiked Prices and Investigations
Last week on Friday, the EPRA led an investigation team to investigate a fuel station after a motorist reported that he had experienced in a Petrol Station located along Mombasa Road.
The motorist purchased the fuel at a price of KSh 114 per liter, as opposed to the displayed price of KSh 103.2. He bought 61.87 liters of petrol for KSh 6,987, instead of KSh 6,384.
“Be assured that our robust surveillance team has picked up the matter about the facility for investigations. Culprits will be dealt with in line with the Petroleum Act, 2019,” EPRA said in a statement.
