Indonesian motorists queue up at the pumps at a petrol station in Denpasar on the Indonesian tourist island of Bali on August 26, 2014 as major cities across the country are hit with a shortage of subsidized fuel forcing long lines and the closure of service stations. Economists say Indonesia must phase out the huge fuel subsidies that make petrol prices in Indonesian among the cheapest in Asia but gobble up about 20 percent of the state budget. The subsidies are historically a tense political issue in Indonesia, where fuel price hikes to reduce the payouts have been met with massive protests and caused divisions between coalition partners in government.
