Today in the practical life oil has become the most essential commodity. In order to get rid of it, we need to do something by promoting the usage of the Solar vehicles solar Motors and use the oil as required amount.

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 am GOKUL KHANNA.

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.

Thank you guys.

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. The government can also improve the transportation system so that people prefer using public transportation more than the individual vehicle.

Price of oil is increasing day by day. As consumption of oil is increasing. Persons coming from the same area, going to the same destination, can use only one 4-wheel vehicle to come to their destination except using their individual's vehicle. By this, we can consume much of the oil. Use bicycles or we should walk for small distances except using our vehicles.

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.

We are discussing the topic "How to deal with high oil prices". First of all, I just want to tell all of you whenever scarce resources are available it will have more demand and consequently increase the price. Hence only the one option is left to us low consumption of oil. Coming to the public part it can be done through by using more government transportation facilities and also reduce the use of vehicles to the maximum extent.

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.

Solution to any problem is within the problem. We know that we can't achieve anything until or unless we don't make any efforts for that problem. So it's not only the government who should take care of all the mishappenings in India. We are also part of this country and many
of you must be thinking what we can do for that, how can we be a part of solving that issue.

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).

India is considered in the list of developing countries of the world. And also one of the highest populated country after China, so it is obvious that we have a lack of resources that is one of the factors to make the country to be called developed. Among these resources, oil is one of the powerful factor for any developing country as a source of energy which we can obtain easily and use it, rather than any other form of energy such as solar energy, tidal energy, wind energy, hydel energy which are not obtained in good amount and we don't have fully developed technology so that is reached to common people's. And apart these are costlier than oil.

Some of the following ways can lead us to minimise the use of oil so as to decrease the high rising oil price.

1. In regard to oil consumption, if we will have a good amount of oil then it's obvious that oil price will go down. For these, our government should find other's alternative source of importing rather than importing from the same country and also inbuilt to find the source of oil itself in our country.

2. Indian government should work on the alternative source of energy production. Rather than relying only on oil and should create an opportunity for research scholar to work on these type of projects. As we have a hub of Intelligent Scientist and only they need an opportunity to work.

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

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

5. Use of solar energy for home lighting purpose and for small scale works which required less amount of energy.

Good Day Friends.

Oil prices are reaching sky high in India day by day. What is the reason behind this? In the last decade, oil prices have not just gone up but it has gone up by more than twice of how much it was. What can be the reason? Bird's eye view of this is that the oil reserves are getting absorbed and exhausted. This not really is the reason. This hike has happened over a period of time. Just take the Law of demand and supply! Demand and supply are directly proportional i.e. Higher the demand, higher the supply. With respect to price, Higher the demand, higher is the price and lower the demand, lower will be the price and apparently the supply. It all started with the mass usage of automobiles in our country. It would only be apt to say, India's automobile usage is indiscriminate which has made the demand for oil high and eventually the prices have shot up. It all starts with us! We have to take the initiative to enlighten our co-citizens to make use of public transport in place of their own vehicles and to use bicycles for short distances. The youth of our nation can inspire the people in a positive way to impact the oil prices.

I think, first of all, government of our country should take initiative by putting some kind of pressure on e&p (exploration and production) companies so that they can explore the country and find out more producing oilfield so that the country don't import crude oil from exporting countries and due to this thing the people out their, who are being effected have to face or pay the final rise in price of crude oil. Overall I mean to say our PM words "MAKE IN INDIA".

Secondly, we people should also think and take initiative by using public transport unless using our own vehicles so that the fuel consumption would decrease.

Yes, of course, we know that there is the countineous growth of population. If we increase the use of oil which leads to air pollution Which causes the air pollution and environmental impact. Use the public transport facilities for the short distance rather than a personal vehicle. Which make the little bit contribution for the prevention of environment impact on the living being. Also, there is the responsibility of government to reduce the tax on the oil and provide new technology to manufacture the less discharging smoke Vehicle. Due to limited stock of natural resources available, we have to take care of future. And so make optional for the natural resources.

Subrata said: (Aug 31, 2016)  
In my opinion, We could deal with High oil prices by following means:.

1. Though electric and solar vehicles market is not so developed in a country like India. Try to use electric vehicles which are available in India like an electric scooter, solar two wheelers.

2. Don't use vehicles which are above 10 years old. As these are consuming more oil and also causing environmental pollution.

3. Govt should explore the alternate form of energy like solar energy, wind energy, nuclear energy, tidal energy for lowering consumption of oils.

4. Govt should incentivise peoples for using solar cells for pumping water, using solar energy in generator instead of diesel.

5. Walking to nearby places without using any two wheeler for less consumption of oil. It will indirectly also helps in physical activity.

6. Govt should ban high oil consuming vehicles like a sports car, SUVs etc.

7. Using public transport, share auto, share taxis, metro can reduce sufficient amount of oil consumption.

8. India should explore options where the cost of oil import will be reduced.

Hello people,

We all know about the drastic increase in oil price nowadays. Why don't we use bi-cycles for traveling short distances? Apart from this, I have a doubt why people are importing oil from other countries when it is found in INDIA itself. Few corrupted politicians tied up with business people are illegal by taking false permissions are transferring oil to other countries and making money. If at all we can control this action, we almost met our goals of reducing its price.

I have even got another idea. It's like we have escalators to go from one floor to another and we have flyovers for convenient passage of cars. Merging these two why don't we have moving roads wherein one can travel nearby places without a vehicle instead of having a pedestrian.

By these ways, we can reduce oil price by 60%.

Hi.

Its really easy to say in words but following it is really hard. So what I think is it's better if we think as a citizen of a nation and contribute to the nation. So when it comes in the case of oil reduction we must consider all the perspectives that contribute for that.

1. Firstly growing more and more trees.
2. Using vehicles whenever necessary, money is not that thing that can be wasted on such stuff.
3. Providing good paths or road facilities for pedestrians so that they might be fascinated towards it.
4. The above can be done for sure in case of often visited places.
5. Making people realize these inefficient ways with advantages to them.

Oil is an exhaustible resource, its prices are increased mainly due to more demand. We people can reduce demands by some methods, mainly, by using electric vehicles; bicycles for distances below 2 KM etc. There are other reasons which cause more demand indirectly. They are, using fewer mileage vehicles, over-speeding, keeping the engines running at traffic signals etc. Becoming a responsible citizen will help in dealing with this problem.

Hello, all.

According to me, combined efforts from both the govt as well as common masses are required.

The high oil prices can only be tackled by lowering the consumption and demand in the market.

We need to work on the following things as mentioned below:

1. If possible we should totally switch to renewable resources or at least work towards in this direction to achieve the desired results ASAP. 10 or 15 years from now, most of the European countries will have only those vehicle which will run on renewable energy be it solar or electric. India being the 2nd largest country in terms of the population needs more time than that but totally capable of doing it. We already have metro, buses and rickshaws running on electricity.

2. Promoting the use of public transport and strengthening the condition of public transport. This is very crucial from India's point of view. Even in the capital of India, the condition of public transport is far from satisfactory, Let alone the other states. With the increase in a number of people getting richer, if everyone starts planning to own a car, the condition will get far worse than it is today. Govt needs to step up here and hit the ground running.

3. Traffic jam, this is again a point of concern, a recent study by IIT- Delhi showed that 2 lakh liters of petrol get wasted every day by idle vehicles stuck in traffic jam. This is huge and a big negative for the economy. Increasing the number of traffic police force, improving the condition of roads and traffic lights can make the situation better. But government alone can't be blamed for this, those people who don't obey the traffic rules are also the culprit here.

That's it.

High oil prices is an alarming situation in the present scenario.

With the growth in the population at the ever faster rate, which is leading to the never ending increasing demands, it is becoming very difficult to cope up with it with the limited resources available.

To deal with it, we should try to comprise our needs and greeds for the betterment of the nation and the future generations.

One major step taken in this direction in the field of the automobile is THE HYBRID CARS.

Companies like Tesla, Volkswagen etc. Are into the manufacturing of these hybrid cars. These cars not only reduces the demand and need for the oil, they also help to conserve the. Moreover, these cars are called GREEN CARS as they are eco-friendly, do not produce smoke which harms the environment.

These cars run on both electricity as well as oil with a pretty much good average of 24 kwh/100 km. And as the electricity is renewable, and as it is now days also produced by non-conventional and renewable resources, help to conserve the later ones.

Some other important steps that could be taken is using PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION as much as possible.

It's a good topic to discuss. 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. Currently, a solar powered plane just completed its journey around the world, presents the reliability about it, then the electric vehicle from tesla motors already proved its usefulness.

Not just alternative power we also think about updating the technology of oil engines such as developing engines which give better mileage. Apart from these such new laws have to be implemented that restricted person from using their oil car too often.

In my opinion regarding "deal with high oil prices" is first we will try to prevent the increasing higher rate of population, because higher population needs high consumption of oils for transportation from one place to another place, and it is absolutely true that when demand of oils will be increasing then oils rate will be also increases. And my second opinion that is we increase the use of nonconventional energy sources ie. Solar energy, wind energy, biomass energy, ocean energy etc i.e. safety of pollution or many kinds of human disease.

According to my opinion only solution we are left with to deal with high oil prices is to reduce the consumption of oil.

ie, Decrease in consumption = Decrease in demand = decrease in price.

Now the question arises how to reduce the consumption of oil?

It can only be reduced by combined efforts of both government and Common People.

Following are the measures to be taken to reduce the consumption of oil which in turn will automatically tend to reduce the oil prices.

"Give me oil in my lamp" is a Christian hymn asking God to give us wisdom. After a few years, we will take it literacy and sing it forever.

We say it is computer generation. However, it is petrol generation too for our machines depend on oil very much. Therefor We have to take quick actions to solve this problem.there are many ways we can find absolution for this problem. A few are below.
1. Don't go for a walk in the morning or evening. Instead, walk to your working place.
2. Unveil solar system on your birthday as a memorial. No matter if it is in small quantity.
3. Use train for a long journey.
4. Recycle the wastes.
5. Use public transport.
6. Bring awareness regarding this issue.

It is better we do not ask our government to do anything on this issue, they will not take it seriously. Let the price of oil is high or low they will benefit. If it is high they put the burden on us. If it is low price they proclaim "this is because of our government". Anyway, corruption exists anyhow.

Fuel means energy, all developed country have sufficient quantity of fuel and energy resources they invented all vehicles and machinery according to their energy resources and fuel and now we are all habituated to use their vehicle and machines instead of using their vehicle and machines we should use our natural energy resources which are available all the time. Such as (solar, wind, bio-thermal, hydro-power etc). Today we export only dry fruits, and cotton. We need to export something of higher values. In India, solar rays are available in 365 days and only 5% of solar rays are 40 times of world energy requirement.

Hello, guys.

Yeah, it is a big problem for a country like India. We are among the largest importers of crude oil, and if oil prices go high it makes a major impact on our foreign trade and economy, but by some simple step we can come out from this problem like;

By using more ethanol in petrol and diesel which can be made in India.

By searching new oil fields for the country.

Gearing up for new power sources for our vehicles luke CNG and electricity.

And according to my concern if we will implement them all it would not be a big problem anymore.

In my point of view, prices depend on demand and supply. We are exporting our oil refines to gulf countires and developing them when we are in a matter of scarcity we are depending them for supply they are supplying by having high price rates which a normal can't pay. If we alone use our oil refines India would never suffer with high oil prices.

Not only the oil, for any product price depends on upon supply and demand.

When demand is more than the supply then the price of that product will increase.

Therefore we have to reduce the consumption of oil, it we have to go to the office or picnics or any places in bus or train instead of cars and bikes, through this consumption of petrol will decrease.

Hi everyone,

Almost everyone has contributed their best share and I would like to add a few more points to conclude on the topic.

Considering the following points can extract a feasible solution:

-Oil consumption.
In our day to day life is highly increasing as every amenity demands direct or indirect usage of oil.

Therefore, price increases with demand. To overcome this we must adapt some practices which avoid the consumption like:.

-Usage of products which depends on solar energy, kinetic energy, Chargeable battery.

-Oil Production.
Reserves for oil are mostly existing in Gulf region which exports to different countries and each country importing the oil adds a tax (not applicable for some countries) and the process passes through whole system and prices hike when delivering to the end user.

Oil consumption can only be done when we people try to use less oil in a day. It is possible if we use bicycle rather bike and car. As we know that oil is the non-renewable resource so use it less where ever possible use a bicycle or if it is a walkable distance go by foot you'll become fit and healthy. Our govt is trying to give his best in this particular case so we should cooperate. Less use less money.

Hello,

I believe that everyone should aware about the very important thing i.e. oil is not at all a renewable source one or the another day it'll be finished and we should have an intense thinking about it. I also see that many people in India won't afford to go by their own vehicle. So they are using public buses or many things by the government But I want to mention one thing that there is a majority of those people who waste oil just to show off and sometimes when it is not much required. So I thing that they should get awareness about this fact that oil is very important not only for us also for the next generation who have all the riots to enjoy the resource we are enjoying. People should reduce the use of vehicles when it's not necessary.

According to my view on the topic, the first and foremost concern is in front of India or a developing country that demand is increasing and source of oils are decreasing consequently the price of oils would increase day by day. We should take some preventive measure against this problem.

(a) By increasing the general awareness in every corner of the country of the fact.

(b) The use of the vehicle such as motorbike, the car is really essential or not. We can avoid the motor vehicle where it is not required can use cycle or on foot and we have to switch off the vehicle on head light. The government also should take some imitative steps to avoid the misuse of petroleum oil like odd even formula at Delhi.

In reference to above subject, my view's are, as oil is not a permanent they will get out of stock anytime so we have it for the limited time only so to deal the high price of oil we must have to develop the technology which increases the amount of oil in the country. We can develop the vehicles which provide a high mileage so we can sustain the use of available oil for the longer time. We can develop a competition between two different companies providing an oil for us.

Hi,

This is Yaswanth. The price of oil depends on many factors. Some of them are,

1. Demand and supply.
2. Currency value.

If demand is more and supply is less then there will be the scarcity of resource then the price will increase.

If more supply less demand then there will be less price.

Due to increase in the population, the number of vehicle usage is also more.

It is better to reduce the usage of own vehicles for modern and lorn journeys and by using public vehicles we can reduce this problem of up and downs. Then we will be benefitted through government.

When the demand increases, price increases. But, we cannot get away with demand.

I agree with the comment made by the brother that much of income is generated by the government as taxes paid by people on petrol and other fuels. But the welfare of people should be the priority.

If we can run our vehicles wisely, we can certainly bring down the demand and hence High Oil Prices.

Hello Guys, You are discussing a very good topic, This debate is also good for our nation, Here I have seen very good ideas to solve this rising oil problem.

Rising oil problem is not only for our country but also for all over the world.

There is some reason why is the oil pricing rising:-

@ Today every individual has own vehicle that runs on the oil.

@ Increased crude oil.

@ Worlds population.

@ Todays fashion to have a costly vehicle that gives low mileage.

@ Use vehicle for the small journey.

How Can We control It:-

@ Less Use of the vehicle that uses oil.

@ Promote to journey in public transport.

@ Promote vehicle that uses the nonconventional technique.

@ Use cycle for a small journey.

@ Odd-Even Rule can be applied in the metro cities.

@ Instead of using own vehicle office colleague, friends and family must be travel in a single vehicle.

First thing is we have to save the fuel from wastage how should we can save, I have a question for all the people.

1) While purchasing groceries near by your are you using bike or by walk?

2) When your going to running or walking are you using bike or by walk nearby the ground?

3) When you're in signal are you switch of the engine or not?

When we have to follow these saving we can give crude oil to the future generation rather our generation blame us they think like once upon a time they had use crude oil for moving the vehicle. Save crude oil for next generation.

If the price of oil products is not increased, India will keep on facing this deficit. Price increase will decrease the demand which in turn need fewer dollars for oil import. Trade deficit will also be lowered down leading to lesser pressure on rupee-dollar rate.

Not only petrol price but the price of diesel, LPG and kerosene will also be increased to have more prominent impact. This will improve the fiscal deficit of the government and lead to economic growth.

On the other hand, price rise of petrol can be controlled if the government reduces its revenue from the taxes on petroleum. 35% of government's income is generated through petroleum taxes and as there is no other substitute to this so probably this won't be done by the government. Hence petrol price for sure will increase.

But indeed Government has to take strong decision as increasing prices will solve one problem but leads to many other such as poverty, inflating, high cost of living, frustration etc.

India is one of the highest importer of crude oil, but its top export products include refined petroleum. So having efficient refineries could result in net profit from oil imports.

So other than cautiously using petroleum and other alternatives of petroleum, from an economics perspective, we need to increase our refining capacity, have more refineries, drill more domestically to decrease our dependency on imported oil. This would cause our rupee to appreciate and in the long run would cause the oil prices to lower.

One more factor in cost of making it so we can get away with terrorism, make a body to regulate it worldwide and more and most important to look on other alternatives of fuel like renewable ones they will cost us initially but in long run they are going to help us also there is need to cut dependency on private transport, and to encourage people to use public transport this way we can minimize the cost and fight with it.
