Just in time for the holidays, fuel prices have gone up.

Prices have risen 1.59 percent for petrol 4.53 percent for diesel, says Energy and Water Utilities Regulatory Authority (EWURA) director general Felix Ngamlagosi.

Petrol in Dar is now 1890 TSH per litre.

Diesel in Dar is now 1798 TSH per litre.

“To a large extent, the continued increases in the local market prices have been caused by the increase of prices of petroleum products in the world market,” says Ngamlagosi.

Don’t forget you can check fuel prices any time by dialing *152*00#.
