Indonesian President Joko Widodo has raised fuel prices by about a third, hoping that the decision will save the government $10bn in subsidies.
Soon after the announcement of the decision, people started queuing up at petrol stations across the capital, Jakarta.
Businesses have complained that the fuel-price rise could increase other expenses while their profits will remain the same.
