0 55

Retail prices of fuel in Tanzania have risen despite the government intervention by scrapping off Sh100 of levies.

Motorists in Dar es Salaam will with effect from March 2, buy a litre of petrol at Sh2, 540 from Sh2, 480, while a litre of diesel will cost Sh2, 403 a litre from Sh2, 338. Meanwhile, retail price for a litre of kerosene will cost Sh2, 208 a litre up from Sh2, 291 in February.

The new prices which were issued on Tuesday, March 1, by the Energy and Water Utilities Regulatory Authority (Ewura) take effect from Wednesday 2, 2022.

Speaking today, Ewura’s Director General Godfrey Chibulunje, said the prices are actually a relief comparing to what actual prices were supposed to be due to the government intervention that waived off Sh100 on each litre of petroleum products.

Mr Chibulunje stated that prices will also increase for the products imported through Tanga and Mtwara ports. At the Tanga port, the price of petrol will now be at Sh2, 563 per litre, diesel will be sold at Sh2, 484 while at Mtwara a litre of petrol will cost Sh2, 577 and diesel will be sold at Sh2, 530.
