Alfon Simanjuntak, BPH Migas Director of Patuan Oil and Gas at the same time inaugurating the one-price BBM in HSS, said that the inauguration was a manifestation of the government's concern for the people in the regions who had not enjoyed the same price as in Java.


In addition, he also appealed to the community together with the local government to participate in supervising the availability and distribution of fuel at a price in the region. "This is to be right on target and not be misused. There must be no industry and individuals who enjoy the one-price BBM program for personal gain," said Patuan.

He hopes that with the one-price BBM program in HSS it can boost the economy of the community and make it easier for people to get cheaper fuel prices.
