Fuel octane 95 prices rose from 6.6 pounds to 7.75.

In Cairo, Uber starting fees will stand at 7 pounds, while Careem's 7.5 pounds.

Uber raised prices from 2 pounds per kilometer to 2.30 and 30 piasters from each waiting minute.

In Alex, Uber's starting fees will be 6.50 pounds in lieu of 6. The rest of prices will be the same as in Cairo.

In Hurghada, Mansoura, Zagazaig, Tanta, Damandhour, Uber's starting fees will be 6 pounds and 2.10 pounds for each kilometer instead of 1.85.
