Pertamina, Indonesia's state-owned oil and gas company, is providing a 24-hour motorist service during the Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr 2024 period to assist vehicles that run out of fuel during the holiday homecoming rush.

The company's efforts, in collaboration with relevant authorities and affected parties, aim to provide a smooth and safe journey for motorists during this important religious and cultural event in Indonesia.
