DISTRIBUTION OF SUBSIDIZED DIESEL FUEL ON FISHING VESSELS IN PPI LHOK BENGKUANG, SOUTH ACEH
Fishers at PPI Lhok Bengkuang, South Aceh Regency, are still unable to obtain subsidized
fuel oil. This is influenced by the increasing demand and the limited fuel supply at nearby fuel station.
The purpose of this study is to calculate the amount of diesel fuel distributed to fishers, the service
capacity of the fuel station at PPI Lhok Bengkuang, and the amount fuel supply. Data were collected
through observation and direct interviews with fishers who buy fuel regularly, which are then analyzed
using simple math. The results of this study show that 125 L of diesel fuel were subsidized subsidies
for 4 months, with a monthly average requirement of 31.92 liters. Fishing vessels with a size of 1–10
GT consumed most diesel fuel ranging from 85 to 285 liters. The tank capacity of the fuel station is
20,000 liters, and to fullfil the demand, diesel fuel is delivered 1-2 times per month.
