Oil marketer KenolKobil is currently offering its loyalty card holders Sh. 5 per litre discount.
Motorists with its fuel card dubbed K-Card will on Wednesdays and Sundays pay Sh5 less per litre, while cash customers are to enjoy a Sh3 discount. On other days K-Card holders pay Sh2 less a litre of petrol and diesel.
A litre of petrol in Nairobi is retailing at a maximum of Sh91.56, while that of diesel is retailing at a maximum of Sh82.12.
“Enjoy a Sh5 discount per litre on your K-Card and Sh3 per litre for others…every Wednesday and Thursday,” said KenolKobil in an advert placed in local dailies Tuesday.
This move by KenolKobil has come in the wake of increased competition from smaller oil marketers. For instance, Total Kenya, Vivo (Shell) and KenolKobil held a market share of 51.3 per cent in the quarter ending June 2016, compared to 71.9 per cent a year earlier.
