Suara.com – The issue of the increase in the price of pertalite has become a hot topic for the public. The public also wonders, when will pertalite go up? To find out the answer, let’s look at the reviews in this article.
It was previously reported that the Government through Pertamina plans to announce an increase in the price of subsidized fuel (fuel oil).
As for the news circulating, Pertalite will increase by Rp.2,350/liter so that the price becomes Rp.10,000/liter. Currently, the price of Pertalite is Rp. 7,650 according to the government’s regulation.
Regarding the circulating news, Pertamina, represented by Patra Niaga Irto Ginting as Pertamina’s Corporate Secretary, said that the increase in subsidized fuel prices was the government’s authority.

“Pricing is the authority of the government. Meanwhile, we are still waiting for directions from the government,” he said.
When Does Pertalite Rise?
The news about the increase in subsidized fuel prices circulated after Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan as Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment said that it was very likely that President Jokowi would announce an increase in subsidized fuel prices.
Luhut added that the increase in the price of subsidized pertalite and diesel fuel will increase next week. He asked the public to be prepared if the government inaugurated the increase in subsidized fuel prices.
Luhut also said that the fuel subsidy, which had reached Rp502 trillion, was a burden on the state budget.

“Maybe next week the president will announce what and how this price increase will be. So the president has indicated it is impossible for us to maintain that because our fuel prices are the cheapest in the region and it is a burden for the state budget,” said Luhut.
Luhut also said that the current fuel subsidy is not on target. This has an impact on the subsidy budget from the 2022 APBN (State Revenue and Expenditure Budget) experiencing swelling.
In the Draft State Budget for 2023, it is also stated that the government has distributed a slightly lower energy subsidy budget of Rp. 210.7 trillion. That means, a slightly lower distribution of the energy subsidy budget makes the government reduce the distribution of the volume of subsidized fuel or other options to increase fuel prices.
According to Luhut, President Jokowi has ordered ministers to provide social cushions. This is intended so that people’s purchasing power is maintained, especially for the underprivileged when the government formalizes a policy regarding the increase in subsidized fuel prices.
This is the information about when the price of fuel goes up which has stolen the public’s attention and has become a hot topic of discussion in recent times. Do you agree that subsidized fuel prices will increase?
