INDUSTRY.co.id - Garut - Distribution of 3kg subsidized gas in Garut regency, West Java, has returned to normal to meet the needs of people who previously had vacancies in some areas a few days before and after Eid.

"Now there is another three-kilogram gas delivery, previously it did not exist," said subsidized gas retailer Sudaryatno at Kampung Lengkong Kaler, Samarang Village, Garut, Wednesday (20/6/2018)

He said, a few days before and after Lebaran there is no gas because it is not supplied by the usual distributor of gas to the stall area of ​​Kampung Lengkong Kaler.

Gas deliveries, he said, were just re-done on Tuesday (19/6) with allotted by distributors only five gas tubes subsidized.

"Only given five tubes, when the need in my stall a week can be more than 20 tubes," he said.

He hopes, the distributor adds gas supplies to meet the needs of customers in the village that most of the less fortunate.

"The supply should always be there in the village, because in this village people really need gas subsidy from the government," he said.

Legal Manager of PT Al Sahal Putra Utama Sejahtera and PT Karya Utama Abadi Jaya as agent of Pertamina, Evi Hartaz Alvian, said that it has anticipated gas scarcity by holding market operation and increasing quota of distribution to fulfill society requirement during Idul Fitri holiday.

Related to the scarcity in the community, he said, not because there is no gas in the agency, but the delay of distribution from pangkalangan to retailers.

"Actually there is no 3kg gas scarcity, only the delay in distribution to every retailer dealer, which is caused by the usual driver pulled during Idul Fitri holiday, as well as congestion conditions also influence," he said.

He added that the amount supplied by Pertamina for Garut regency is more than enough, and even added to offset the increase in gas usage in the community during Lebaran holidays.

"Want to Lebaran would double the use of gas in every home," said Evi. (Ant)
