Indonesian economic power is still not able to provide subsidies to people, so it was forced to raise the price of fuel will increase inflation and accused to hits lives of most people who do not have strong purchasing power and further complicate the lives of the farmers, fishermen, workers, and small traders.

The government finally decided to raise the price of fuel oil (BBM) subsidy of Rp 6,500 to Rp 5,500 types to premium and diesel per liter.The announcements were made at the office of Minister for Economic Affairs, Jl 2-4 East Jakarta Banteng.

 This is due to changes in the parameters that are used as the basis for calculating energy subsidies, such as the volume of subsidized fuel consumption.President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono wrote that the price of fuel oil (BBM) subsidy had to go up."After the last 2 years the government not to raise subsidized fuel prices despite very swollen, this time had to be increased," wrote SBY in the social networking accounts, Twitter, Friday (21/06/2013) morning.

 He also asked the police officers to explain the findings in the national media as soon as possible. "What if the bullet hit residents or students. Did it include police procedure, it should be explained," he continued.Previously reported, protests the rejection of fuel price increases by dozens of students IISIP on Highway Lanteng Agung, South Jakarta, led to clashes.
