Plot with CI and PI

I have this graph that depicts PI being larger than CI for values of 14.5 and 24 for the independent/predictor variable. CI take into account regression coefficients, which are estimates. The PI has true error, which I am not sure what that means or where that comes from. Is that the noise captured in epsilon? Why is the PI larger than the CI?

    $\begingroup$ It is larger because you are trying to predict where a new observation will be & that new observation has an additional standard deviation of the error term. Confidence intervals are based on only the fitted values & do not involve making a prediction. It represents the uncertainty in the "fitted' value. $\endgroup$ – Michael R. Chernick Oct 9 '19 at 2:37
  • $\begingroup$ @Matthew To the two components of the confidence interval discussed here you have to add a term for the variation in the data about the population line. $\endgroup$ – Glen_b -Reinstate Monica Oct 9 '19 at 4:40
