The more the restrictions on subsidized fuel are postponed, the more likely there is a shortage


Suara.com – A member of the Downstream Oil and Gas Control Agency (BPH Migas), Saleh Abdurrahman, said that if the restrictions on the purchase of subsidized Pertalite and Diesel fuel were further delayed, the possibility of a shortage would be even greater.

This was said by Saleh in the Polemic event entitled Profit and Loss of Fuel Subsidies, Saturday (6/8/2022).

“We (BPH Migas), actually like this, the longer it takes, the more we delay the tightening of Pertalite, the more likely there is a shortage,” said Saleh.

Therefore, his party reminded that the quota for subsidized fuel for the type of Pertalite and Solar for 2022 has the potential to run out in October and November 2022.

“If we allow this trend, as we have said in various places, in October, November, Pertalite may no longer exist. Unless there is another policy, to add or pay other compensation,” he said.

Not only that, said Saleh, for the distribution of subsidized diesel fuel, the type of diesel will reach 8.3 million kilo liters until June 2022. As for the first semester, the subsidized diesel quota will be.
