Tanzania’s Energy and Water Utilities Regulatory Authority (EWURA) has inceased fuel prices with effect from 3rd August 2022.
The increase in prices means a litre of petrol in will cost TSh3,410 in Dar es Salaam up from TSh3,220, whereas a litre of diesel will go for TSh3,322 from TSh3,143 in the previous month.
In Tanga port, a litre of petrol will cost TSh3,584 whereas a litre of the diesel trade for TSh3,929. In Mtwara port, a litre of petrol will cost TSh3,762 and that of the diesel will cost TSh3,933.
The price of Kerosene for Mtwara and Tanga will same as Dar es Salaam at TSh3,765 per litre.
Despite the increase, Ewura maintains that fuel prices would have been higher without government’s monthly subsidy of TSh100 billion. Without the subsidies, the price of fuel would have been TSh3,630 per litre of petrol, and TSh3,734 for a litre of diesel.
