LOW WORLD PRICES & UNFAIR LOCAL FUEL PRICES

The system of fuel pricing in Kenya leaves a lot of questions answered. The fact that vehicle owners do not usually feel the benefits of low world prices and arbitral increase of road levy is proof enough that the playground is not level.

The present fuel pricing is seriously skewed in favour of downstream marketers and upstream players. Marketers’ profit margin is marked up high by Energy Regulation Commission (ERC). According to marketers such boon (super profits) was not to be the work of the ERC.  The formula used is far from what was enacted into law in 2010, which was achieved after six years of hard lobbying. The cost of landing, transport and guided overheads was set to determine the costing, however this is no longer the approach. The regulator has made fuel prices unpredictable and a constant source of anguish for motorists and economy. The bane and insincerity of the matter is, world prices have remained low but local pump prices have escalated under all false reasons and excuses.

MAK having lobbied for reforms which brought about present fuel controls believes that ERC have reneged on the objective of the original idea of fuel pricing and their purpose as a regulatory body. The essence of a reliable oil industry was to do away with frequent and sudden fluctuations which do not only drain motorists’ purse but destabilize the economy.
