JAKARTADAILY.ID - The scarcity of cooking oil has begun to occur in several parts of Indonesia.

As previously reported by Pikiran-Rakyat.com, the government has set the highest retail price (HET) for cooking oil which started on February 1, 2022.

The HET for bulk oil has been set at Rp11,500 per liter.

For simple packaging, it is set at Rp.13,500 per liter.

Meanwhile, premium packaging is priced at IDR 14,000 per liter.

However, recently a video went viral of hundreds of residents of Tanjung Beringin Subdistrict, Serdang Bedagai (Sergai) Regency.

According to Pikiran-Rakyat.com from the Instagram account @suara_bergema, a video of mothers flocking to minimarkets on Pahlawan Dusun 10 street, Pekan Tanjung Beringin Village.

This incident occurred on Sunday, February 6, 2022 afternoon.

These mothers even had the chance to get into the row with an officer and minimarket employees while jostling in front of the door.

The officers seemed overwhelmed by the queue.

In the video upload, it also mentions that the minimarket manager and his co-workers have tried to block the urges of the buyers.

The reason was the store did not want anything unwanted from the buyer or the minimarket to happen.

Unfortunately, until this article was published, there was still no further information from the minimarket.
