Indonesian president announces cuts in fuel prices

Sun Dec 14, 2008 7:44am EST

JAKARTA, Dec 14 (Reuters) - Indonesian president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono announced on Sunday further cuts in fuel prices, to take effect from Monday.

Indonesia's fuel prices are heavily subsidised, putting a huge burden on state finances but the government's decision to raise the price of subsidised fuel by an average of nearly 30 percent in May in the face of soaring global energy prices proved very unpopular and hit Yudhoyono's ratings in the polls.

President Yudhoyono has said he plans to run for re-election in 2009, when his government's track record in managing the economy, tackling graft, creating jobs and alleviating poverty will be put to the test in presidential and parliamentary elections.

The cuts in subsidised gasoline and diesel fuel prices, of 9.1 and 12.7 percent respectively, will take effect on Dec. 15. They follow an 8 percent reduction in subsidised gasoline prices at the beginning of December.

"The global economic recession has decreased crude oil demand and hopefully it is at a stable and favorable price for our economy," the president told a press conference.

U.S. crude CLc1 closed at $46.58 on Friday, down more than $100 a barrel from record highs of over $147 a barrel in July.

President Yudhoyono also said inflation in 2009 was forecast in the range of 6-7 percent, which is below the central bank's forecast range of 6.5-7.5 percent.

"It is hoped that the fuel price cut will ease the burden on people and lower costs for industries," Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati told reporters following the president's announcement.

With slowing inflation, Indrawati said that spending power was expected to remain steady or increase, adding that the fuel price cut may help "cushion the impact of the global economic crisis on economic growth here."

Indrawati on Dec.2 forecast GDP growth of between 4.5 and 6.0 percent for next year.

President Yudhoyono said subsidised gasoline prices would be cut to 5,000 rupiah ($0.455) per liter, from 5,500 rupiah per litre currently, a reduction of 9.1 percent.

Diesel prices will be cut to 4,800 rupiah per litre, he said, from 5,500 rupiah per litre currently, a fall of 12.7 percent.

Indonesian likely to cut fuel price again

Mon. December 15, 2008

JAKARTA, Dec 15, 2008 (Xinhua via COMTEX) -- MRLS | Quote | Chart | News | PowerRating -- The Indonesian Energy and Mineral Resources Minister Purnomo Yusgiantoro said that the fuel price of premium still has potential to be cut, which is influenced by crude prices, state budgets and the people's purchasing power.

"The government has learnt that the premium price is in anomaly, lower than the crude prices," the leading website Kompas. com on Monday quoted Purnomo as saying.

He added that the premium price does not automatically follow the market rules.

Purnomo reiterated that the subsidized premium prices always are adjusted every month as stated in the Ministerial Decree No. 41/2008. "We have seen that this is the right time to cut the prices. But it is not exactly fall on 1st every month," he said.

He said that the premium cutting would give an impact of decreasing price of transport fares and increasing consumption. The Indonesian government decided on Sunday to give a second fuel prices cutting due to the falling crude oil prices on the international market, from more than 100 U.S. dollar per barrel earlier this year to 44 U.S. dollar last Friday.

Thanks for that. It certainly does look like Wilfred, probably during last year's trip to Cap Ferret, where he deflowered Paris Hilton.

http://wordsmith.org/anagram/

Although I just googled: paris hilton anagrams

And before cognizance of http://wordsmith.org/anagram/ RH (presenter) and me (anxious scorer) done a round of grannygrams at a quiz at EP.

I remember the first was: Piss nearer to me (local drinking venue).

Another was: Ala durian tits (Indonesian dancer/singer).
