    I came across this while looking to see if Indonesia allow foreign ownership of land (they don’t).

    Those folks are facing a 33% price hike in April and things are getting ugly. :ohmy:

    A 33% hike will certainly hit their back pockets: most of the population is not affluent. Not a good time to be Indonesian and poor, I would think. We recently had a 4c/ltr rise in our fuel prices here (rural town), after a long period of stability, but that is a long way from 33%. One thing I am sure of is that fuel prices are not going to go down any time soon.

    Poor things. I can only imagine how hard it will be for them. It cost me $90 to fill up yesterday and that’s a commodore station wagon :jawdrop:

    Wow MH, you must have been empty. My car took around $55 today ($53 after my 4cents a litre off)and I’d hate to have to pay an extra 33% on top of that.
