1) Go for alternative energy sources to reduce the dependency. Shift to renewable sources
2) Strategic alliances with the oil exporting countries to obtain oil at cheaper prices. Moreover, it can barter it with some services or goods.
3) Use public transport, carpool etc. Use as per your need only
4) Set up strategic oil reserves when global prices are down.
5) Bring oil under the ambit of GST.

We know India is a second largest.

Country in the world. The demand of oil is more in India. One third of the population of India is youth. Almost all using bicycle rather than bus transportation. We have switch our vehicles cng.

Govt should implement rule that each family should have one our two vehicles. In these way we can control high oil prices.

Nowadays we can see increase in oil price at an alarming rate which is a very big concern for people. So to avoid this thing we can better use cng or alternative sources of energy so that there will be no stress related to use of oil products being exhausted before future and there will be also no stress related to oil prices increase. The cng products used also cause less pollution as compared to diesel and petrol and also easily available. So finally according to me we should prefer cng vehicles instead of using oil.

When we see the price of oil globally and compare it with INDIA, it's very much surprising. Globally oil price is falling. But in India, it's raising, now government selected daily change in oil price. But I feel its useless, why the government Not putting crude oil and oil products under GST. Still, the charging us excise duty on oil, government Reduced 2rs excise duty on oil and told it will be a loss of 26000cr annually for government Showing that like they did a big favor to us. INDIA is also a developing nation like our neighboring countries if we see the oil price of their country it's reasonable. So, in my opinion, oil must bring under GST to control its pricing.

This is the major issue today the rising price of oil which has become an important part of our life. It is not good to be dependent on using oil as fuel. There are also some alternate options like using e-bikes, e-cars, cycles, using public transports, sharing vehicles etc. But there needs a great management to manage taxes imposed on it by various means by central and state governments which is the main reason for hiking prices. GST like initiatives may help it to deal in it. And people awareness will play a major role in dealing oil pricing management.

Best way to deal with high oil prices are carpools, use of alternative source of e-bikes, bicycles, and the cheapest mode is by using govt transport.

Prices depend on the demand and supply criteria and lesser the demand lesser the price.

In the recent scenario even though the price of per barrel has declined but the state is not ready to reduce the taxes as this is the only source they are attacking to set off the losses the state has incurred with the implementation of GST.

Hi good morning everyone,

According to me, Nature having lots of other resources, which can be used as optional for Oil and other rare resources.

Solar system (Unlimited source), Electricity which can create unlimited by using wind power (unlimited source), water power (Unlimited source).

If we use the optional resources then only we can save the rare resource like oil and gases of an earth.

Hi guys,

Oil prices are purely depended on demand and supply. If demand is more, the supply will become low then cost of oil prices will rise. Buy central government can control the price of oil. For example, if government Wants to raise the oil prices, instead of hiking the oil prices they can hike the price in railways, gas, cigarette, alcohol, etc. Especially they can hike in cigarette and alcohol. Because these two are demandable than petrol.

People should know how to use oil. For example, government Drivers, if they stop the bus in the red signal, they don't switch off the engine they keep it on till the single becomes green. This is also one kind of wasting the oil.

Hello, first of all,

I want to say that oil is essential to everyone. Use of oil is kept on increasing. Oil is a renewable energy. As a citizen of our country, we have to save the oil. Oil is needed for our vehicles. Even public transport needs oil. Oil like petrol, diesel etc is very essential. Generators run because of oils. We can avoid using two wheelers or four wheelers, inverter consumes huge oil. If it continues, the demand of oil will be very high and there will be no oil in future. We need to save it. Oil is too very dangerous when 1 spark of fire touches the oil, it will burst. Many accidents occurred because of this and many too lost their lives. So I request everyone to be very careful while using and use it limitedly.

Hello fellow members.

In my opinion, consumption of oil will increase with increase in production and growth of the economy and reducing the imports or reducing our consumption of it may not prove to be very helpful. Thus, in order to deal with high oil prices India can make strategic alliances with the cartel to obtain oil at cheaper prices moreover it can barter it with some service or good. Moreover, price rigging and corruption are the main reasons behind the high prices apart from the forces of demand and supply.

India should go for alternate sources of energy and invent technology for using bio-waste instead of oil, it will be the cheapest and help India in waste management as well. Moreover, solar energy or hydro energy should be put to a better use.

Hello everyone,

The rise of oil prices is due to the increased imports. Various kinds of taxes are levied on it and the prices ultimately get hiked. Also in our country, there is high demand for oils for various purposes and low supply of it. So, in order to decrease its price we need to decrease our consumption which will decrease the demand and hence there will be a balance in demand supply. Firstly we need to be conscious of our usage of oils. Do not keep the engine on when not driving, Use alternate sources of energy, try walking or cycling for smaller distances, try using public transports, make a habit of carpooling. If we maintain all these habits then we can dream about prices of oils to go down. Thank you.

In my point of view, India is imposing the crude petrol from countries like Iran and UAE WHICH are abundant of petrol. Crude oil is available in not much higher price but When Indian petroleum company imported it there are many taxes levy on it. Also company include labour cost production cost transportation cost on it and finally we get price at high price. Here times comes when Demand is more and supply is less as there are very less purging company available in our country. To tackle this situation we must use alternate source of energy like ethanol biogas as conductor of our vehicle. We can also tackle it by using bicycle to go to small distances, avoid using extra petrol when we have no work.

Hi Guys,

As we all know that what is the role of demand & supply as demand goes up and supply goes down so usually prices go up. Just like this situation takes place because of "demand and supply". Day by day demand of such oil is increasing the stock because of multiple reasons like increasing numbers of vehicles and there are many other machineries which are useful for work only with help of oil. So if we really want to reduce the demand of such oil so there is need to work on it so that we can stop the hike of prices till a level. So the following stages would be effective to use. 1. Turn off your engine when the traffic light turns red. 2. Don't keep start your engine when your vehicle is not moving. 3. Going in your own vehicle when there is need to go with. 4. Use public transports as much as possible to go from one place to other. 5. Don't try to use extra machinery, use as per need. So with the help of these steps, we can reduce the oil demand in the market.

Using CNG gas is also a kind of power through which we can run our vehicles on the roads. So using CNG we can also control the hike in prices.

India is the biggest importer of oil and our revenue is not sufficient to cover all these things. This is the reason of hiking in oil prices. So to maintain oil prices in India, we need to reduce our consumption of oil.

For this,
1. Start to use alternatives of oil. Many countries like America, Brazil are using ethanol instead of oil for transportation. Oil resources are also limited in nature, therefore it will be helpful to maintain the resources of oil.

2. Instead of own vehicles, we should try to use public transport and bicycle for our daily curriculum.

3. Start to promote electric and solar vehicles for using because these are renewable sources.

So every person should be concerned with the government for dealing the high oil prices.

Hello everyone.

This is Aman Sharma here.

Simply we need to make some powerful rules for dealing with these problems which are-.

A) Make one rule which is based on age as we are following that the eligible age for voting is 18 years, so the government needs to compulsory it for driving or riding also.

Because we have seen that small -small kids are going to school with the bike instead of using cycle.

B) Unnecessarily, the goverment put charges on petroleum product while importing due to this when it approaches near to public it automatically gets on high rate. So we want actual charge sheet from the government to know the actual price after taxation.

C) We need to categorized the cities on the basis of consumption of petroleum products, and according to that conduct awareness program by central & state government for awareness and also about more n more use bicycle. For short distance.

D) Using of vehicle-based on battery, operating machinary work through electric, solar systems & hydro power can reduce this problem to some extent.

Hi guys,

As the statics say by world bank that India export 80% of crude oil. To buy that much oil we need exchange our money into dollar that makes rupee weak against dollar. This makes an impact at every commodity in India.

To dealing with this problem there are 2 ways.

First, we have to use less machine that uses more crude oil but it's like a wind which gonna that blow no one good because it's going to slow down of production process by this way our GDP also fall.

The second way is we need to try to increase our export so which will GDP but only export is not gonna help us on this problem we need try new approaches to which help us make energy.

Hello, everyone.

As we all know that India is one of the high oil importing country. That's why nowadays we are facing the problem of hike in oil prices. Currently, the quantity of crude oil decreases day by day, if demand remains same it will automatically increase the price of purified oil. To reduce this price currently, there is no option left unless we think about alternate of oil. Like solar power, electric vehicle.

So my point is that we need to cut down the usage of oil by,

1. Use of public transport rather than using own vehicle.

2. Use of eco-friendly vehicles that is running CNG is also a good option to remove oil consumption.

3. The government has to make a law in such a way that every individual family should have limited vehicle.

4. The government should encourage scientists and researchers in order to make vehicles largely based on electricity & solar energy consumption.

5. Every individual of society has to use a bicycle or public transport services for shorter distance let say 5km this should be made as a law then almost 20% to 30% of fuel-importing will reduce in such way & this will also help to improve our health.

It is defined as the most renewable source of energy. Perhaps India can also load some windmills in the southern part of country and put more pressure in energy generation by renewable sources.

Make more use of public transport than using your personal vehicle. This will reduce pollution and helps to consume energy resources.

Furthermore introducing some badaass stuff like electric train, electric buses, hydrogen fuel cars. (which was recently launched in America), will cause lower consumption of oil. And eventually, its prices can fall down.

Yeah, I agree govt should take some initiative to lessen the consumption and there should be some technology like solar or electricity based vehicles, but somewhere electricity is again related to fuel and these are some intricate things to implement in a big rush, what I think is that we should not just perpetually speak out what should govt actually do to reduce the consumption that in turns will result in the reduction of the oil prices or there ought to be any technology or something, because every positive step or gambit start with us, so come to very basic we must lessen the use of vehicle just to go a few meters from the house, we should drive any vehicle below 40 km/h so that it can reduce oil consumption and these very small steps can make a huge difference, if all people take this as personal initiative. It's human mentality to follow what is going on in their surrounding and that will consequently make other people think positive too and they will also attract toward them.

Hi everyone, as per my point of view there are two reasons for hike in oil prices.

1. Continuous use of conventional energy sources like coal, oil, etc.

2. Government policies.

Now I come to the point first no or very less use of alternative (non-conventional) energy sources like solar energy, wind energy etc. So we lost very soon our conventional source of energy storage.

As far as my second point is concerned, many taxes rope by Indian government or state government on oil like VAT and many more. I think these are the reason which affects the oil prices,

We use more and more renewable energy sources because it's cheap and pollution free.

Hi to everyone,

Oil is Inevitable nowadays. And Just now I came to know that India is the largest oil importer in the world. To stop that need to reduce the using of the oil consumption things more likely motor vehicle, buses & moreover on machines, which work on oil it drinks more than the vehicles.

And in our country each and every home had more than 2 vehicle which runs on oil. Now we are getting oil from other countries, at some point oil is going to end in that countries, need to find some other sources to move on other steps.

When Arab countries had a huge amount of oil they will export to some other countries like India, USA, etc for a low price, Now oil is reducing day by day so it going to be coast more. To avoid that we need to find other options like electric sources to run that machines.

This is a supply and demand of a non-renewable source of energy. Thus if the demand for oil increases as compared to the supply as it does then the prices will rise. As a solution to this, we should move towards renewable sources of energy. India is blessed with the Solar power. This power should be exploited to a substantial extent. Done so will reduce the burden on the government to supply combustible fuel.

Also, the government should sign certain agreement or MoUs with gulf countries. This will reduce the pressure on the supply of oil. Also, various companies and corporate houses should prevent the use of motorbikes and other vehicles which burn fuel in its premises.

- Short distance walk and use of bicycle also impact on oil consumption which helps to reduce prices of oil and equally good for the health of human being.

Good morning everyone. Today's topic for discussion is "How to Deal with High Oil Prices?".

As it is known fact that oil is the most important inevitable source of producing energy be it in motor vehicles or in electricity generation, the role of oil can not be denied. Hence, due to large scale demand of oil supply and limited amount of resource present, and majority of oil reserves present in Iran, Saudi Arabia, thus there prices increases due to import from other countries.

Thus, oil prices can be dealt by bringing in alternative technology in place of fossil fuels.

Also, by spreading awareness among people of using more and more public transport or car pooling will reduce the oil consumption and hence the prices.

Thank you.

Guys, first of all, I want to highlight the fact that India is the largest importer of oil or crude oil in the world. We import fuel from the other countries. India needs to import 2 million barrel of crude oil from Russia. Also, oil companies in India take 5 to 10 % more than the actual price. So in order to reduce the supply and consumption, we need to take some strict actions. We use public transport example trains, buses etc. We should use the Electric vehicles to travel in our locality. The government should focus on the non-conventional sources of energy. If we adopt all these reforms or suggestions the comsumption of oil will definitely fall down. As a result, the oil companies will decrease the oil price and oil import.

Thank you.

Another point that I wanna add is that Apart from the central taxes and state taxes, Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) also charges about 5-10% of the original prices from the dealer & that extra charge is included in the final selling oil prices in India. Until the oil companies keep charging this much amount from the dealer for their profit, The oil prices in India is not gonna reduce up to a significant amount.

When we talk about oil prices, We should first focus on the India's economic position in the oil sector. India always being an importer of oil, though India has vast reserves of oil in some of the parts but that is not enough to fulfill the need. Recently the surge in oil prices affected the oil exporter and producer countries that include OPEC countries and Russia but India still facing the Problem of high oil prices because there is no such surging in imported oil to India. So, to reduce oil prices, India should focus on exploiting its new oil reserves found near Rajasthan and Gujarat and should focus on efficiency of ultimate recovery of oil from the pre-existing fields like Bombay high, Digboi etc. Narendra Modi's vision of "Make in India" should be extended to "Produce in India" for oil sector.

If Indian government should focus on the non-conventional energy source then it will also help in reduction in oil prices because of the Supply-demand concept. What I m trying to say is if we use the non-conventional energy then the demand for oil will reduce that will force the exporter countries to reduce their oil prices for INDIA.

Firstly, I want to tell that due to high oil prices the price of an essential commodity rises in relation to that the one has to spend more and compensate with the standard of living. (Inflationary Position). High oil prices is a strategic decision by govt to protect the environment from misuse of oils.

A question arises how to deal with high oil prices.


* Through sharing of vehicles with others will help in sharing of expenses.
* Use of more public transport utilities.
* By shifting to CNG vehicles.
* Use of bicycles (may be not practical but Rich Peoples in Japan also use bicycles to go somewhere.
* Use of electronic vehicles for transportation purposes.

The price of petrol in India is higher than most of the countries in the world. The fact is that India imports huge quantity of petrol from the middle east and presently ink a deal with Russia of importing 2 million barrel crude oil. Thus it is clear that importing crude oil is one of the factors of high petrol prices. So basically to reduce petrol prices ; limited uses and also sustainable petrol consumption is required. Less use of private vehicles; more use of public transport ; high-efficiency petrol or diesel cars ; trucks ; buses and most importantly utilization of electric ; solar or CNG vehicles. Last but not the least more mode transportation by trains will reduce petrol prices significantly. As we know that prices of a thing depend upon supply and demand, Thus less consumption ie less demand will highly impact or reduce petrol prices.

Good Evening friends Myself P. Vijay Kumar, I would like to add some few points regarding the Oil Prices in India.

First of all, we have to remember that India is not the oil exporting country it is oil Importing country. In Consumption of oil, India Stood at rd place in the world. Why because Geographically India does not have certain minerals to extract the crude oil. So, it is depending on the Oil exporting countries Like OPEC. To reduce or to Control the Oil Prices India seeks to the Inflation produced in the OPEC countries.

Hi friends,

I agree with as they put their views but I would like to add few points. As we all know clearly that mineral comes out after digging on some part of the earth in middle east country. And they also create imbalance on earth as we saw in Uttarakhand that was cause of natural disturbances so what we have to just one i.e. reduce the used oil where solar made thing can be used. Also, increase usage of cycle and tonga while going near the relatives this will also help us to improve our physically strong. But in 2014 America has developed shail oil artificially and he stopped buying oil from Arab countries so prices will definitely go down.

As we all knows day by day there is an increase in prices of oil this occurs due to India have not their own plants they will have to import from the Arabic country in comparison to Arabic India have very low currency so if there is a small increase of prices the rates of oil increases sharply in India if you have to deal with the prices you have to improve your currency and also black marketing taxes are necessary for improvement of GDP.

Imran Khan said: (Oct 8, 2016)  
Hi everyone,

1) The reason for the rise and fall of oil price is due to the imbalance in the equation of supply and demand. The consumption of oil is more than it is produced.

2) The dominance of few of the countries in the production and control of oil E.G OPEC nations. Thus they decide the price of the oil in the international market.

3) Competition among the oil producing nations.

In order to counter the above-stated problems, the possible remedies are as follows.

1) The use of an alternate source of fuel likes ethanol, biogas. This will reduce the demand for oil which will reduce the production of oil hence reduction in the cost of oil.

2) People should buy more of eco-friendly cars such as CNG, electric, hybrid because majority of the oil consumption is in this sector.

3) Use of public transport will reduce the oil consumption as well as pollution in the environment.

4) Carpooling would be a better option.

5) Govt should try to look for more oil reserves in India rather than importing from other countries.

As my thinking,

We should use vehicles. They have human-made equipment use for human works this is necessary and need in our life.

We can use vehicles in minimum oil consumption in minimum cost. And we will do our work successfully in our valuable work invaluable time. As my thinking vehicle uses the method.

We use vehicles like Public transportation, Cars, Bike (solar or electric), Cycle.

It is selective approaches method. It means we use vehicles in classified different categories of required level of a valuable work invaluable time and vehicles advantages and disadvantages to using the vehicle minimum consumption and minimum cost on oil.

We classified the categories below.

1) Cars:

Use for only sometimes work - Minimum time in more valuable work.

=> Ex- Important meetings, patients travel (ambulance & personal cars), etc.
=> Advantages- Minimum time consumptions, speedy work, reach to required point at that time.
=> Disadvantages- High cost, more oil consumption, create air pollution.

2) Public transportation:

Use for regular work- more valuable work in a minimum & more time.

=> Ex- Long distance travel, regular work,
=> Advantages- Less cost, minimum air pollution, minimum oil consumption, etc.
=> Disadvantages- Time-consuming, only fixed situated place etc.

3) Bike (solar or electric):

Use for regular & only sometimes work - minimum time in the long distance more valuable & more works.

=> Advantages- Reach to required point at the time, minimum time consumptions, etc.
=> Disadvantages- More air pollution, high cost, etc.

4) Cycle:

Use for only some & regular work - more time in more valuable work.

=> Ex- Travel for market, enjoy, exercises etc.
=> Advantages- Safty, strong health, without any cost.
=> Disadvantages- Time-consuming, etc.

We use vehicle required time in required work to this method followed then will be decreasing of oil consumption and save the money and when the decreasing oil consumption (demand) then automatically decreasing the value of oil and we get more benefits of money save in two times it means we followed this method to required type of work to minimising oil consumption to save the money and decreasing value of oil to save the money And also control the air pollution.

Nowadays need to control Ari pollution because air pollution is damaging our life so air pollution also controls and minimize to this method followed.

I think that the government alone can do very little to reduce the oil price. It's the consumers who need to understand that if we keep on using oil at the present rate then our future generation will face a huge scarcity and also excessive use of oil is leading to pollution and global warming. So my point is that we need to cut down the usage of oil by,

1. Using public transport more
2. Using solar energy whenever possible
3. And using cycles while going markets near our home, this will also help to improve our health.

For reducing this problem we can use battery charger at small distance like as petrol pump.

Oil price hiking is the burning issue in India from almost 6 to 10 years. Basically, the hike in pricing depends on import of oil & consumption of oil.

This can be reduced in many ways.

- One, by implementing the rule that one should not maintain more than 2 vehicles . which currently highly impossible in our so-called developing country.

If that rule is implemented, oil will be I reach to every citizen and obviously the importing of oil will be reduced to an extent.

- Second, by Finding more resources within our country. like oil to be dug out more in order to reduce importing oil. which is not as wise as it says.

- Third, Usage of solar and hydro machines. The basic installation cost is super high.But once you install the system, you will no longer use the petrol. so obviously you are independent to oil.

On the other hand, we have to improve our infrastructure for transportation and refinement of crude oil so when the oil prices come down we can have sufficient storage capability.

Oil prices are high because of low production and high consumption. Sometimes this increase also depends on oil producing countries. So if we are able to consume less oil there is a very good chance of using oil efficiently and at reasonable rates. One can use bicycles for the shorter distance. People should use public transportation instead of their vehicles. This not only ensures how to deal with high oil prices but also with pollution.

Hello, everyone!

Oil prices are increasing due to low supply of oil from other countries. Demand and supply are directly proportional so as the demand is increasing supply too is increasing. A reason may be that our country which is said to be the second most populous country after china so as the population is increasing gradually it is leading to decreasing in resources. There is an immediate requirement of any law or rule to set up more oil drilling stations if possible otherwise we have a talented group of scientists who can find many alternatives for oil. Secondly, the government must also take action in providing more public transport because in the hustle and bustle of urban areas public transport are proving as time taking uncomfortable. So people have to switch to their private vehicles even if they are not able to afford them. Metros are an example of such alternatives. And yes it is not only the job of government to provide everything for us we too are required to help the government in building a better India which is only possible if we too work at an individual level. For example - Switching to public transport more often, turn off the car when stuck in the traffic jam, etc. Thus every problem always comes with a solution.

I believe the oil price can be controlled by two means. One of them is to reduce the demand and another one is to produce more crude oils. I don't think it's possible to produce crude oil since it's the gift for a human being. What we can do is to go for alternative methods like hybrid vehicles.

On top of all these, we must create awareness among people what is the economic background behind the oil we buy. Encourage then to carpool or to use public transports. By this ways, the demand for petrol can be reduced. More electric powered train systems have to be introduced. The bus fleets should be increased.

I hope by these steps people would choose to use the transport facility and reduce the demand for petrol.

But is this going to happen all over the world? So may be the new oil reservoirs has to be found. To meet the future needs.

The oil prices affect each and every sector of the economy through a direct or indirect channel. The oil price also affects the every entity in the economy. So a change in oil price affects an oil company's performance, a country's economy and customers saving and consumption behavior. If the general price for the oil is increasing then the customer has to pay more for less amount, which will reduce the consumer saving. The impact of oil price increasing on as a whole depend on the economic structure of the country, for example, the price increase will be beneficial for oil exporting country and a burden for oil importing country. For an oil company which is involved in the exploration process of the oil, a price increase will be beneficial. But if a company which business is involved only refining and distributing to the customer will be less profitable.

Oil price hike is one of the burning discussions in today's world. The hike is mainly due to the taxes levied on the oil. Nothing much can be done about that by us as individuals. But what we can do is check our use of petroleum as fuel and switch to other natural sources of energy, like solar energy or CNG. There is not much the government can do to reduce the oil price but it can urge us to use petroleum as efficiently as possible.

Oil still be the main resource for transportation and power supply in most of developing countries, but the increase in oil prices affect not only developing countries but also developed countries. Higher oil price will cost higher cost in almost all economic aspect, which relates to inflation in one country. How to deal with it? we need to reduce the usage of oil product and start to develop alternative energy to substitute high price oil. There are several possibilities for alternative energy such bio-fuel, CNG, or electric power vehicle and geothermal or solar panel for industry and power generator. This way, other than to provide alternate energy resource we also be able to decrease our dependent of petroleum product in the far future.

Hi to everyone.

In order to deal with high oil prices;.

1. Use electric vehicles such as motorbikes, solar energy two wheelers.

2. The government has to make a law in such a way that every individual family should have only 2 cars, not more than that why I said 2 is in order to convey the person because like everyone has the dream to buy a car and have own house in that purpose I told.

3. The government should encourage scientists and researchers in order to make vehicles largley based on electricity, solar energy consumption.

4. Every individual of society has to use a bicycle or public transport services for shorter distance let say 5km this should be made as an law then almost 20 to 30% of fuel importing will reduce because our India population is more. For one person usage of fuel is reduced for 5km its nearly think 0. 25 liter per person of imagine some number if this is followed by all people in India almost we can reduce 20% fuel import.

5. Reaserchers and scientsist has to made experiments on bicycle like gear cycles came into existance and more ways inorder to make atleast students or kids to use bicycles rather than cars and bikes. The creativity in such a way that it should drag the complete interst of student towards using bicyles almost 50% of youth uses bicycles.

This can be done in following ways:

- Guys opt for CNG vehicles rather than petrol/diesel variant.
- Carpooling is not a bad idea.
- Rather than why not use a Public Transport.
- Get your vehicles maintained regularly (because more unmaintained the vehicle more consumption of oil i.e. more demand so more hike in price.

My personal experience doesn't fuel your tank in multiples of Rs 10 or 5 (they have all settled for that) opt for 90, 198, 297 it will help for sure.

-And last not the least never sit back and wait for things to happen, make it happen after all you are the one who has to suffer the consequences, not the government (especially Indian government).
