OTHER POSTS


(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 for the relevant product as it is computed using the approved formula, which was gazetted through the Government Notice No. 656 published on 21st August 2020.


(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.
