When will Pertalite Fuel Prices Rise? This is an explanation and price details

Suara.com – The agenda for the increase in fuel prices in August 2022 has been heard on various channels. However, in fact up to the time this article was written, the price of fuel was observed to be stable. Then when will the price of pertalite fuel go up? What about the other types?

As far as team monitoring Suara.com, the government is still doing careful calculations regarding the total increase that will occur, and what types of fuel will be increased. A little information that can be shared is as follows.

Confusion over the implementation of the new fuel price

Actually, the issue of the increase in subsidized fuel prices, pertalite and diesel, has been around for some time. At the end of August 2022, even at some points, there was a shortage, due to public purchases in anticipation of rising fuel prices.

However, until now the government is still conducting studies on this price increase. Later it will be formulated carefully, taking into account the rupiah exchange rate and world oil prices, which are currently continuing to soar and burden the state budget if they continue to force the current fuel prices.

The latest news that is considered to have the most potential to have truth is that the announcement of the increase in subsidized fuel prices will be made on August 31, and then the new tariffs will be implemented on September 1, 2022.

Normal Price According to the Minister of Finance

In a meeting with the DPR, Finance Minister Sri Mulyani herself revealed that without subsidies, ideally the price of pertalite would be around Rp. 14,450 per liter. But of course, because pertalite is included in the category of subsidized fuel, the ideal price will not reach that level.

Regarding the exact number that will be decided is also still very volatile. There is an opinion that the price of pertalite itself will increase between Rp. 1,000 to Rp. 2,500 per liter, but there are also those who think that the most ideal price is at Rp. 10,000 per liter.

Once again, the figures and the date of implementation are still at the level of estimates and rumors only. It is better to wait for an official announcement from the government, so that valid data can be obtained.
