Bekasi residents in kerosene craze
City News - September 07, 2007
BEKASI: A kerosene agent in Jl. Teuku Umar, Bekasi, was overwhelmed Thursday as Rawalumbu district residents gathered early in the morning to collect cooking fuel supplies.
Atun, 36, had been in the queue for almost two hours.
"We ran out of kerosene yesterday," she said.
The long queue forced agent Zaenal Abidin to limit buyers to a maximum of 5 liters of kerosene per household.
The residents have yet to receive their free gas stoves and gas fuel cylinders from the central government, as part of an initiative to reduce kerosene subsidies.
"The policy has stalled the distribution of kerosene over the past month. I don't have the money to buy a gas stove and the cylinder myself," said Maryati of Sepanjangjaya subdistrict.
Many of the residents had gone back to using firewood as fuel for cooking, pending delivery of a kerosene supply to the agent.
Zaenal said he previously received 5,000 liters of kerosene each week from state oil and gas producer Pertamina's depot in North Jakarta.
"But following the announcement of the conversion (from kerosene to gas as cooking fuel) program, I now receive less than 5,000 liters per fortnight and only if I pay Rp 1.5 million to the depot official as a down payment to ensure delivery," he said. -- JP
