Vindicating news from Kalimantan

The Jakarta Post today (4/12/2008) reported:
The price of subsidized gasoline in the Kalimantan hinterlands hit a record Rp 20,000 (US$1.61) per liter as of Wednesday -- just three dyas after the central government dropped the official price to Rp 5,500 per liter from Rp 6,000.
Furthermore, the newspaper quoted a street gasoline seller:
It's very hard to get fuel out here these days...
And yet another one:
I don't know when this situation will end... So if you want to buy gasoline, that's the price, no less...
As I said, this all shouldn't be surprising.

And you say it's not enough.

Just out of curiosity, how much would petrol (premium, pertamax) and diesel cost without government subsidy?
