(d) The changes in local prices are attributed to the increase in the world oil market prices which contribute about 93% of the changes in price and premiums which contribute about 4% of the changes. Furthermore, prices in the country are comparable to prices applicable to the neighbouring countries.

(e) EWURA would like to remind the public that these cap prices can be accessed through mobile phones by dialing *152*00# and then following the provided instructions. This service is free of charge and is available in all mobile phone service providers in the country.

(f) In line with the prevailing sector legislation (Petroleum Act, 2015, section 166), prices of petroleum products are governed by rules of demand and supply. EWURA shall continue to encourage competition in the sector by making available petroleum products pricing information including cap prices. This information on prices is intended to enable stakeholders to make informed decisions on petroleum prices at any particular time.

(g) Oil Marketing Companies are free to sell their products at a price that gives them a competitive advantage provided that, such price does not exceed the price cap or goes below floor price for the relevant product as it is computed using the approved formula and EWURA (Petroleum Products Prices Setting) Rules 2022, which were gazetted through the Government Notices No. 2A and 57 published on 3rd January 2022 and 28th January 2022 respectively.

(h) All petrol stations are required to publish petroleum product prices on clearly visible boards. The price boards should clearly show prices charged, discounts offered as well as any trade incentives or promotions on offer. Consumers are encouraged to purchase from stations that sell products at the most competitive prices and offer better services. It is an offense not to have prices published on boards located in clearly visible places in front of petrol stations. Failure to adhere to this directive will attract punitive measures from EWURA.

(i) Retailers must issue receipts printed from an Electronic Fiscal Pump Printer (EFPP) for all sales that they make. In addition, consumers are required to demand and keep those receipts that clearly show the name of the petrol station, the date on which such purchase was made as well as, the type of petroleum product (fuel) and price per litre for every purchase they make. This can be used as an exhibit in case of a complaint lodged in the event that the selling price is above the cap price or in case the products sold do not meet the approved specifications and provide an assurance that appropriate government taxes on sales of petroleum products are fully accounted for recovery from the Retailers.
