Rwanda Fuel Prices: Crystal Car hire Rwanda brings you an update on the current state of affairs to enable our car rental clients make better informed decisions while renting a car with us.
Recently the Rwanda Utilities Regulatory Authority (RURA) increased pump prices for gasoline and diesel, as a result of the current instability of oil prices in the global market, .

However, the new Rwanda Fuel Prices will take effect on March 06 and but will have no effect on our car rental rates, as we would like to have the prices as stable and affordable to all our car rental clients.

According to the statement, petrol (Premium Motor Spirit) has increased to 1,256 Rwf per litre from Rwf 1,225 while diesel (Automotive Gas Oil) increased from Rwf 1,140 to Rwf 1,201.

Without government intervention by way of subsidies, prices of diesel and gasoline would have risen by Rwf 121 and Rwf 64 respectively, the regulator said.

The subsidies were introduced in May 2021 when global oil prices began going up after a sharp decline occasioned by reduced demand as a result of the Covid-19 related lockdowns and travel restrictions.

The decision was also taken in order to avoid the negative consequences of exaggerated fuel price increase that would cause the generalised price increase (inflation) and therefore decelerate the speed on which Rwanda’s economy is recovering from the impact of Covid-19 outbreak, according to RURA.
