Fuel distributor braces for mass exodus season
Berita Terkait

JAKARTA. Petroleum and chemicals distributor PT AKR Corporindo has committed to maintaining the stocks of its subsidized fuels at sufficient levels and keeping its gas stations open 24/7 in a bid to anticipate soaring demand for fuel during the upcoming Idul Fitri break season.

The company will maintain its subsidized diesel Solar dubbed AKRA Sol at a 32-day level, while its AKRA 92, which has a research octane number (RON) of 92, will be maintained at a level of 164 days during the holidays, which are usually marked by massive outflows of travelers..

“We have several gas stations located along Pantura [Java’s northern coastal area] highway,” AKR Corporindo director Mery Sofi said on Monday.

“All of outlets will be open 24/7 during the mass exodus season, especially within seven days before and after Idul Fitri [that will fall either on June 25 or 26].”

Last year, around 26 million people participated in the exodus, with some 5 million using private vehicles while the rest used various modes of public transportation.

Previously, state-owned energy giant Pertamina stated its commitment to maintain its stocks of Premium and Pertamax fuels, which have RON of 88 and 92, respectively, at a level of 24 days during the Idul Fitri break season.

It has forecast that demand for Premium and Pertamax will increase by 5 percent and 10 percent, respectively, compared to usual as people tend to use higher-grade fuels for long journeys out of town. (Viriya P. Singgih )
