Hi, according to my view we the people should use the vehicles when they are need better not to use vehicles for unnecessary purpose, it leads to pollution, traffic etc.

Using the public transport as much as possible by this we can reduce the consumption of individual usage, so demand decreases automatically. Using the electricity as fuel consumption because electricity can be generated in different forms like hydro, wind, solar.

Hi friends.

I would like to add few more points to your opinions.

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.

Hi everyone.

According to me high pricing of oil is good because if the price of oil is going to be low down, then more and more vehicles must be running on the roads and it creates lots of air pollution, sound pollution, there will be more traffic jams, and to overcome this we facing lots of problems.

To control high oil prices we must use public transport, use vehicles only when it's really important. According to me people should mostly use bicycles it not only environment friendly but also keeps you fit and strong.

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.

Hi friends in my point of view people can create awareness about use public transportation to reduce the usage of petrol/diesel. Cycle is the best way for travel a short distance so people can use cycle. If you want to go neighbourhood place like 1 to 2 km use cycle or walk it is good for health.

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.

Hi guys.

I would like to discuss my point on how to reduce oil prices. Definitely, increase in oil prices is brought about by high demand, solutions are:

1. Factories should introduce engines that run with molasses.

2. Limit the opening of petrol stations.

3. Use public transport.

4. Use cars which use less fuel etc.

Yes we can deal with this crises as prices are rising due to certain factors we need to understand them and then work on those. For example these are rising due to terrorism in those areas plus shortage of fuel as they are not renewable and large pool is vested with only few countries.

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.

Day by day the natural resources are drying up due to over exploitation. So definitely demand will increase and proportionally price will also increase. So, I feel that this is the right time to find new technologies and alternate energy sources use of more efficient transportation technologies like maglev trains which provide comfort as well as high speeds will attract most of the road users use of bicycles, sharing transportation can also save resources.

2. Instead of that solar and electric charge vehicle should use.

3. Use biogas fuels.

4. It is one of the non removable source. So as the demand increase production decreases and price also increases.

Hi friends,

Restrictions is not always be the solutions. The restrictions on consumption of oil products lead to slow down our economy or hamper growth of our development.

1. Try to make our economy strong which alternately makes our currency stronger in the international market and reduces price of oil.

2. Emerge as super power and makes deal on our terms.

3. Oil price mechanism makes as transparent as possible.

Hi Friends,

According to me points to deal with high price of oil are:

- Use of renewable sources of energy which is in abundant amount such as solar energy, wind energy, bio-gas.

- Looking for alternative supplier of the oil such as Russia through BRICS.

- Encouragement to the use of bicycles by providing separate pathway.

- Use of CNG for local transport.

- Efficient use of resources and some government policy changes will help to deal with high pricing of the Oil.

Hi friend,

I think in current scenario many countries focuses on alternate source of energy like America shifted its needs on shale gas. Similarly we have to promote electric and hybrid vehicles as they helps us to reduce our dependency on crude oil and also starts awareness programmes about economical use of fuels.

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.

Hi Friends.

As we all are discussing on "How to deal with oil prices".

Every one is giving there points and in one or another we all of us are correct, but do we really implementing this in our daily life or this all stuff which is written is only a paper work.

That's where my point come we don't have to only talk but we have to do to achieve what we have said. Here we all are giving the points that we have use this instead of this, much of our small journey.

We should use bicycles, for long journey public transport, at least we know that the people who are the part of discussion are aware of the fact that oil is a crucial part of life, we know the importance of what we have written.

So my view is that we should have to take steps, from my childhood we are listening that we should do this but who cares but today the situation we know, that time has came to achieve what we have said. Otherwise we are left with nothing to regret as this are the non-renewable energy, we can't get it back.

Mostly we depending on the gulf countries for the petrol diesel and whatever the oil may be. As we know that oil is exhaustive definitely one day it may come to an end, but it plays a very crucial role in the transportation sector.

It also supports India economically through which the income we are getting by this. If suddenly there is raise in oil prices means it is very difficult for the ordinary man to get. Yes we agree that oil is one of the cause for the increment of pollution.

2. For the same destination (place for job or etc) people must have to use car pooling. Rather than using their individual car.

3. Government should increase the number of public transport facility with good security. So that people reach easily their destination.

4. We have to prefer renewable energy sources. Like hydrogen energy, bi gas energy. This will help to reduce the pollution from environment.

Good afternoon friends.

I have read many good points and everyone tried to give his points what he or she thinks. I want to share my thoughts on how the price could be lowered.

1. India basically depends on North India and middle east countries for its petrol and diesel needs. This creates some monopoly type of situation so we should see some other countries for oil and petrol. Russia is one such country we could think of. It has very large amount of crude oil reserve. And India and Russia are members of BRICS so Russia may agree for it.

2. Mainly there is a competition between India and china in pricing. So due to bad relation both countries constantly increase price to get the better attention of oil supplier countries. So by mutual cooperation these two countries can fix a standard oil price in order to avoid unbalanced oil price.

3. We know that this is a non renewable source of energy so it is depleting giving rise in its price. So we can minimize its use when not necessary.

4. We can go for rewnable source of energy like solar energy, hydrogen energy, bio gas for this purpose.

5. We should minimize the use of petrol by promoting the use of CNG in vehicles.

6. Heavy vehicles consumes a lot of fuel so we coul develop such material which would as strong as steel or aluminium but comparatively light. One such material is carbon fiber which is almost 5 times stronget in torsion test and much much lighter than steel.

Thank you.

As we all know that the consumption of petrol and diesel is increasing day by day due to private vehicles. But this is due to the lack of governance as government should facilitate the proper govt transportation services at regular intervals.

On an avg every second family has at least two-three vehicles at their homes. To reduce the consumption of oil, people going to the same destination should pool the car. Like China India is not concentrating on the alternatives of fuels. Petroleum minister should be appointed on the basis of his degree in the oil field so that he/she can take a wealthy decisions. Over Traffic may also leads to the environment problems. Now the time has come for the govt to take some steps to reduce the hike of price of oil, this can be done by imposing fines on the families having more than 1 car for every 5 members. Traffic police should try to overcome the problem of jams especially in the metro cities. The.

Today the consumption of petrol and diesel is increases day by day. Peoples mostly use car, motor cycle, scooter etc. Whenever they want to go anywhere. As a result of which the demand of oil is increases, due to which the prices of oil is increased.

If we want that the prices of oil is deceases or remain at control rate, then their is need of government should do work for that such as.

1. The government should maintain the good road.

2. Increase the number of flyover.

3. The vat on oil prices should remain same in all states.

4. Take strict action against the stockholder who can store the oil, mix kerosine oil in petrol & diesel and take out oil from tankers before reaching at filling station.

5. Increase the age of issuing licences from 18 to 21 years.

6. Cancel the licence of person who doesn't follow the traffic rules.

7. Make changes in traffic rules like government should ban on the use of car for moving one place to another place within the one city except the emergency condition like medical help.

If we really want that the price of oil is decreases, we should also compromise with itself such as.

1. Increase the use of bicycles.
2. Switch off vehicles at red light.
3. Prefer to travel long journey through trains, buses etc.
4. Don't waste extra diesel in generator.

It can only be reduced by combined efforts of both government and Common People. Efforts from people:

For shorter distances we must go by walk or by bicycle, that is we must try to use bicycles more than automobiles. By doing so we can not only reduce the consumption of oil but it will also save our environment from air pollution.

People of same destination and same work must encourage car pooling.

We must try to use public transportation facilities like Metro trains, buses, rickshaws as much as possible rather than using our own private vehicles.

Drive wisely, Put off your engines while there is a red signal traffic lights.

Stop using vehicles for showing status.

We should focus on developing biotechnology and solar energy sources.

Efforts from the side of government:

Government should decreases the rate of taxes.

Government should increase the number of public transport vehicles with high security.

Government should maintain the roads good and safe for vehicles.

Traffic police must also work hard to clear traffic jam on roads because most of the fuel is utilized by the vehicles in the traffic.

Give the facilities in cities which they demand (like development of good schools, colleges etc. ) so that people can save there fuel and time too.

Promote bio-diesel.

Should promote companies which makes low petrol consuming vehicles.

Should make bridges so that chances of traffic may get reduced.

The only solution to this problem is less consumption of oil as its scare and therefore more demand and hike in price.

Measures should be taken by both government and public are.

1. Government should apply connection of metro in every cities so that its easy for public to travel.

2. In every city there should be public roads so that public transport can run easily. In every part of country there should be a facility of public transport run by cng.

3. Government has to make bridges and flyover so that it reduces traffic.

4. In private sectors, there should be prohibition of cars and vehicles within campus area.

Measures taken by public:

1. They should use only public transport.

2. They should take cycle rickshaw for short distances.

Hello everyone.

The overconsumption of the oil can be stopped if the government should set up proper public transport system. The public vehicles should be clean, provided with security to ensure safety of women. The Government should make good connectivity across the city. They should increase the number of vehicle so that the people would not have to wait for long. The road should be made in such way that the middle lane will be used only for public transport. It will definitely reduce the time.

By the help of advertising people will sense the improved quality of transport system. They will start using the public transport.

This will reduce the consumption of oil resulting in reduction of price.

So there are few step by using this we can deal with high oil price.

1). We must use bicycle for shorter distance.

2). Using highly efficient energy.

3). Use of solar panel for charging the vehicle.

4). And most important we should try to save petrol or oil.

First of all we have the target to stop the high all prices by use of oil in limited amount.

For this matter, we have to leave our vehicle for little work such as if we want to go to the nearest place then we have to gone by walk. So, this is the best idea to save the fuel (oil).

By carrying this idea we can save the oil and our money.

So, we can spend this money for other important work, like a life insurance, Social work, charity fund, etc.

I think so we are charging a very high price for petrol n diesel. We have the highest oil prices among the SAARC countries (our neighbours). They are charging petrol at 40-45 Rs/litre inclusive of all taxes which means we are paying an extra 30-32 Rs/litre towards unaccountable government charges. The oil companies like HPCL, BPCL, IOCL, etc. Enjoy high profits (turnover in thousands of crores) and yet they say that the oil industry is going in losses. One way to decrease the oil prices is decreasing the consumption and that can be done by using public transport like metro and buses.

Pool taxi system should be promoted more amongst the common public and metro rail should be deployed in every metropolitan. On larger scale, we should import less oil and find more opportunities for oil extraction in India. Importing from Iran will decrease the current account deficit of India. Also non-conventional sources of energy like biofuel, hydrogen fuel and electric automobiles should be encouraged in India.

Because everyone try to live with the growth in technology and everyone serious with their prestige.

So I think that the increase in the price of petrol cannot affect anyone but the increase should be limited but not like that the price increased in every week the increase should happen in a month because the government increase everyone salary. In every year but their is a disadvantage for the citizen who are non government employee because they does not paid a particular money for a month It is also disadvantage for the students thank you.

Hi friends,

Petrol is a natural product and limited as well. According to the international survey, by next 30 years this natural product is going to over on this planet. Because consumption of petrol is rising day by day. This cause's the rising in price of oils. Now question is that what to do? We are not able to deal with high price of oil without decreasing the consumption of it. We cannot generate artificial oils. So according to me life moves in cycle.

Very first bicycle invented. Then motors. Then cars. And now again bicycle. This is the only way to deal with it and it will also decrease the pollution rate. Even in some countries government are constructing special track for cyclists.

Hi Friends.

Oil is a limited resource concentrated in the hands of limited countries who have formed a cartel called OPEC to gain higher profits from its oil. And everyone knows that when a resource as precious as oil is controlled by a cartel, however we shout nothing will happen.

So basically the only solution to the above problem is reducing the wastage and unnecessary use of oil. Here are some basic steps for that.

1: Watch all the ads issued by the government regarding efficient usage of gas and oil devices and try to follow them.

2: If possible use your feet instead of your vehicle. It will also help you to get in shape and will make you an ecological-man.

3: If walking really hurts; don't bother Macmillan invented us bicycle, and we can use it also. It is also good for health and environment.

4: Make use of public transport. The concerned governments should also increase the circulation of the public transports so that people can rely on them.

5: Its for the government. Don't just say "We will make roads, fly-overs etc " but do make them otherwise you guys will also have to commute by bicycle one-day.

That is all. Follow these and the pressure on your purse will reduce, I swear.

Hi all. I would like to put-forth my viewpoints on this particular topic.

I believe It's easy to understand why oil is important in our daily lives and why it plays such an important role in shaping or bringing down of an economy in any country for that matter. The entire country can come to a standstill if there is a shortage in supply of oil resources.

I already knew that some Arab countries which are rich in oil resources had some say in impacting the oil resources of the world, but I did a little research and found out that there are a group of 13 countries which band together in controlling.

The oil resources of the world has put-forth an organisation called as OPEC stands for Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. Saudi Arabia, Qatar; the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Libya and Algeria in North Africa, Iran and Iraq in the Middle East, Nigeria and Gabon in West Africa, Indonesia in Asia, and Ecuador and Venezuela in Latin America.

Though these countries do not produce all of the world's oil resources, but definitely they are in a position to set the guidelines for world oil policies. So whenever this organisation increases or decreases the oil price, it affects all of world's oil import and export business directly affecting the economy of the country.

So the question arises how well we can control the oil prices and how well we can deal with it.

It's not entirely right for us to put the blame on the government for not controlling the oil prices, but definitely with proper public transport and infrastructure it can reduce the oil imports considerably.

Government has to see to that.

I). It introduces new and effective modes of public transport like metro, monorail, high speed rail link.

II). Encourage its' scientist in finding the alternative replacement for oil resources.

And we as responsible citizens can help improve our energy security by selecting a vehicle that uses less petroleum. We can also decrease our petroleum use by getting the best fuel economy possible out of our current car by driving sensibly, keeping our car in shapes.

And finally friends with combined efforts from all.

"let's make our world a better place to live in ".

Hii everybody,

1. I think one of the main problem in India for high oil prices is Traffic. Road are in very bad condition and not a single option present to stop that except few cities.

2. We have pool our cars and bike with our colleague. So this may help to reduce the consumption of oil.

3. Automobiles should be regularly check by pollution centers.

Hi All,

Individual can deal with high oil prices in such a way that:

Using Public vehicle.

Use one vehicle if more than one family members are going to the same route.

Turn off your vehicle at red light, it will also avoid air pollution to some extent.

Government should build roads which are good/suitable for driving Electric/Chargeable Vehicles as US government has already taken this initiative.

Vehicle company should also focus more on building high quality/good mileage electric vehicle. As we all know Oil is a non renewable resource which will extinct in future.

By taking these thing into consideration we can make our country shining like a star.

I Think it depends on us that how to tackle with rising price of oil. First we should create awareness among the people that our natural resources are limited and non renewable and if we can't control our use it will be vanish one day. We should adopt any alternative energy instead of petroleum products. We should reduce the use of oil by using public transport, adopting sharing system like new york city, use our legs for short distance, we should use bicycles instead of motor cars or bikes. It gives us lots of benefit like less air pollution, stay healthy an the most important reduce the use of oils.

In my opinion, oil prices are directly proportional to consumption of petrol. If Consumption of petrol increases, Oil prices increases. If government put a regulation on usage of petrol just like LPG, prices of oil can be curbed. Crude oil is most important natural resource. It is not abundant in nature. So, government should awareness programs in the usage of petrol. Government should develop public transport, so people use it without any hassle. Moreover, people should take responsibility in controlling oil prices by using public transport, by using alternative fuels like cng, lpg and electric supported vehicles and car pooling. Oil prices is one of reasons of increase of rupee value. So people should take individual responsibility in controlling oil prices.

Hello friends,

Adding another reason to prevailing high oil prices is "corruption", which has its tentacles in each and every sectors in India. A recent report by AAP shows that government has been already in consent to increase the gas prices from April 1, 2014 and will pay RIL 8$ for the gas whose production cost is less than 1$. We are not sure about the truth behind the situation, but can very well decipher how corruption can lead to doom of country.

If gas prices will rise, then CNG, transportation, cooking gas and everything will be affected leading a common man to suffer.

Government should adopt preventive measures. Proper checks and balances should be applied on private corporation dealing with oil and gas business.

1. Pollution in air will become less.
2. Riding bicycle will increase our health.

We can achieve this goal of low oil uses by applying many measures like,

1. We should acquire some penalty system for people who are using more oil. We can set limits for individual.

2. We have to encourage saving of oil by providing bicycle and making it easily available at any place like a store in some amount of population or on distance basis.

To tackle the high oil prices one can't just hope the govt to do the magic as we all know the fossil fuel is limited and is being consumed ever since we found the use of it, so we can't hope the prize of the oil to come down. But what can be done is to switch to a more reliable and cheaper means energy sources to fuel our gadgets and everyday life.

As a committed citizen or as a worried citizen one can help themselves or help the country by using public transport and the govt can lead to this by offering better public transport facilities and better infrastructure.

Greetings to everyone,

I like to forward and add few more thoughts on this topic (Dealing with High Oil price).

Using public transportation, satisfying our pleasures, greedy about fuel consumption may reduce prices of Oil and if we want permanent solutions for this type of actions we have to come up with counter attack.

First of all things ahead I like to pose 3 naked questions to you people.

1. Do our dreaming youth stop driving those sports vehicles which drags more fuel?

2. Do our spiritual family stops going out in cars?


3. Do our 21st century pays more attention towards money rather than TIME?

If any of those question is yes then I say natural resources are unlimited which sounds ridiculous.

Clearly the answer for these type of questions and issues is "this is the time we have to go with TECHNOLOGY. ".

There are now over billions vehicles traveling roads around the world directly and indirectly costing trillions of dollars in material resources, time and noxious emissions. Imagine all these vehicles running cleanly for 100 years on just 8 grams of fuel each.

Yes this is the Power of Human brain which drags and consumes only 8 grams of fuel for 100 years by using Thorium-Fueled Automobile Engine Needs Refueling Once a Century.

This is beginning and we have to advance in this area.

Thank you for giving opportunity to express my thoughts on DEALING WITH OIL prices.

Hello friends,

As we know that the price of petrol/diesel in increasing day by day, it is because of more use of petrol.

In India lacks liter of fuel in westing per day. Reasons are,

1]. At each petrol pump at about 2-5 liter of fuel is westing because while taking out that filling fuel pipe 2-4 drops are westing during filling fuel in each vehicle.

So there are lacks of petrol pump in India so imagine how many lit of fuel is westing per day. So petrol pump owner should take care of this. Which can save fuel.

2]. Today everyone is having there own bike. While going for college, office, shop etc people use their bike (for 1 person). If they start sharing their bike then fuel will be saved.

Eg: Consider two person A and B living in the same building, area and both are going for the same college and having their own bike.

So they should share the bike. If everyone start doing sharing lacks lit of fuel will be saved.

3]. Avoid use of vehicle for the short distance.

If everyone commit this I am sure that results will be better.

Thank you.

Its really a very good topic to speak on.

And so many friends gives very great suggestions to reduce the effect of oil price hike. I just want to add a little bit on their suggestions.

First of all, I think, there is a need to create awareness among people about the importance of this very important natural resource. People should be aware that crude oil is very limited inside earth and should be used as minimum as possible.

We should try to use General Transportation like city buses, rickshaw and vikram for going to the easy places.

Sometimes, we need personal vehicle for transportation in our daily life so we cannot stop using them practically. But we should take care while buying a vehicle that it should consume lesser amount of fuel as compared to others. Nowadays, people are interested in buying bikes which are powerful and consume high amount of fuel like bullet, pulsar, yamaha. Fuel average of these powerful bikes are in range of 10KM/ltr to 30Km/ltr. Using these kind of vehicle for carrying just two people is totally a wastage of fuel. This wastage should be stopped.

Government should also encourage the use of rickshaw in city transportation. This will increase the employment for poor people and also reduces the use of fuel consuming transportation. This also make a positive effect on our environment too.

Government should also make the policy for car owners that, they should not be allowed to drive car until all the seats of it are not fulfilled i.e. No car should be run on road which do not have person other than driver.

Thank You.

Hello everyone,

High oil price is a major issue in our country because we can't control on the consumption of the oil. When the demand of the product is high then price will also increase parallel.

So there are options that can help to reduce the price of oil.

1. There should be a limit for the subsidiary petrol (as like lpg cylinders) after the limit petrol will sell on the exact price. So that the people will aware form the limit and then any rule and regulation can be easily implement on public.

2. The public transport should be frequent and separate because most of the people does not feel comfortable and safe.

3. For the age of the driving licence should be increase because when a boy completed his 18 years he demands for the bike and consumption of fossil fuel will increase.

4. In the last there are lots of other resources like yo bike (battery bike) , lpg, cng, etc these are the alternatives of petrol so why people feels shame to drive the yo bike and cng cars just because the power of the petrol bike is too higher than yo bike but the yo bike having lots of benefits like money saving, consumption of petrol, safe, etc.

So the alternatives of the resources of the petrol should be promoted by our government.

Hello friends.

According to me we can control our economy by our self. Why we are using vehicles for short purpose also. Now we are getting use to of this things. In india, more than 100000000 liters petrol are consuming daily by people for personal use.

Why we do not use public transport like bus, sharing auto, metro for office, schools, or any other purpose instead of using our own vehicles.

Why people do not prefer train instead of using car for long journey.

Why people is not using electric bike which gives benefit in saving our nature as well as no consumption of petrol.

Govt shod also taken some major steps for less consumption of crude oil. Like.

They should do research in India for crude oil. Recently near by gujarat they have found some sign of crude oil.

They should import crude oil from those country which can provide it in their own currency instead of dollars.

They should decide some limit for petrol beyond that limit if any body is consuming than they have to pay extra tax on that.

They should increase public transport.

They should increase electric rail engines so that it would help in less consumption of diesel.

They should provide electric bikes at low price with insurance so that it would create more zeal in people to purchase that bikes.

Our country's CAD is high because, out of total imports majority of the amount goes to Petroleum products. So we have numerous measures to deal with this issue.

We all know that petroleum products are to paid in International currency. The more we import the more is our CAD, it results in more demand to the US dollar and in turn it results in depreciation of Indian currency. So the main point is that we can deal the high prices of oil by appreciating the rupee also. So our goal should be appreciate rupee, Our currency.

Iran is ready for accepting rupee as mode of payment for import of crude oil, there by by we can reduce the exposure to US dollar, which will reduce CAD and it will result in Appreciation of Indian Rupee. If Indian Currency is appreciated cost of crude oil to us will also come down.

It is not practical to reduce the consumption of crude oil. As how many of us are ready to travel with a cycle for going to office. We are not ready to use public transport if we have a car or a bike. So the need of the hour is to invest largely in R & D to find an another fuel. For example by promoting biofuel we can reduce consumption if Cooking gas, ie LPG. So govt should promote biogas plants. As they are already paying huge amount of subsidy to Oil companies, it will not make much effect to the govt revenue. As we should know that total subsidy for Cooking gas at national level is 85000 crore. So if we are using Bio Gas, we can curb Crude oil use as well as curb CAD also.

Lastly, the most important is, Indian govt should invest in are & D for finding oil fields in our country. I know it is very difficult. But if we can find one, we will be king in the world like Arab countries.

3. And also, we can use common transports for our regular works like going to job, school and going to college like them.

4. How the government limits the number of gas cylinders for a family, vehicle should be limited for a family and the consumption of fuel also be limited. And in-case more than that of limited fuel is needful means we can increase the tax percentage as like Electricity Board.

1). We should prefer walking or bicycle for short distances because it will not only save oil but on the other hand improve our as well as environment health.

2). We should pool our car as it will not only save fuel but also help in saving money.

3). We should encourage use of solar and wind energy.

4). We should reduce the consumption of oil products such as LPG. We can use solar energy or electricity for cooking.

The government should take following steps to deal with high oil prices.

1). The government should boost public transportation system.

2). High taxes should be levied on the companies using high amount of oil so that it can encourage the use of inexhaustible natural resources such as wind energy and solar energy.

3). The government should reduce the number of vehicle used in their campaign.

4). The government should make a rule that a individual cannot have more than a certain number of vehicle and cannot use more than certain litres of oil in a month, if the person uses beyond his limit heavy taxes should be imposed on the person.

Finally I conclude lets all join our hand together so that we can fight the problem of high oil prices and make our country healthy and prosperous.

So it would be better to reduce the price of fuel rather than to face the problem of high oil prices.

Hello everyone,

According to me the best way to deal with high oil price is that we should reduce the consumption of petrol, diesel and oil.

For nearby works stop using vehicles, rather we should prefer walking because it has two way advantage saves petrol and walking keeps your health good.

If we analyse our monthly budget we shall come to now a fact that we are spending near about 10 to 15 % earnings on our personal vehicle maintenance, so lets be smart and save our money as well as natural resource.

The only reason for increase in oil price is that, as India's oil resources are depleting and it is unable to cater the demand of public as a result of which it has to import oil from outside countries paying huge import duty, the burden of which is consequently passed on to common public, which we call is hike in oil price.

So its only up to us, how judiciously we make use of precious oil so that it can reduce India's dependency on outside countries which according to me is the root cause of increase in oil price.

Hike of oil prices in contemporary India has become an indispensable which could not be ignored. Hence it is not only on the government front who should take initiative to control the ever increasing prices through its fare and ethical taxation policies and effective usage and control but also on the part of the general public who should take decision on their consumption of the petroleum products.

Moreover it is on the part of the people to reduce their consumption of the petroleum and its products by opting for environment friendly alternatives available and selecting public transportation available unless it becomes extremely important since we are very well aware of the fact that we lack this resource.

We are discussing on the topic, "how to deal with high oil prices?".

Here, I would like to add my idea.

First of all, Oil is the most important things of our life, after food, cloth & a house.

Without this our life would be paralyzed.

As the oil resources is limited, so with increasing oil demand in world, this is affecting on its price proportionally.

As we can't make control on increasing numbers of bikes and cars or oil used vehicles, & if we do this, this would create negative effect on transport car manufacturing companies. So, we have other option, like making of bio-diesel.

Here, scientists should work on new process of making effective and less costly bio-diesel using different plant seeds. And also government should have to motivate it's agriculture department to take this challenge.

This can lower the increasing oil prices.

Many people use there bikes and car to creation impression on the others. People use there vehicles for office, school and market despite of public vehicles. When demand of oil increases the price of oil also increases. To reduce the use of more fuel we can use the public transport or we can share our vehicle with the co worker.

The discussion as going till now has given various viewpoints but missing the essence of vision to deal with high oil prices in short as well as long term.

Oil Prices directly effect economy of country by way of inflation. It affects prices of every commodity and services available in market. The responsibility of dealing with Oil price rise rests equally upon Government and the citizens of the country.

Government can Deal with High Oil prices by:-

1. Reworking on Economic ties with Oil producing countries.

2. Imposing uniform tax structure on Oil products rather than multiple levels of taxes as prevailing in forms of import/central/state taxes.

As part of everyday life in the 1970's, most Americans had to face the fact that energy sources like oil were limited and not always readily available. Those who experienced long lines at gas stations and higher prices for oil learned more about the sources of their energy. These experiences often led people to choose more economical solutions and their personal choices often included alternative energy use. Furthermore, the philosophical motivation to use less fossil fuel became much more enticing, with direct experience as proof of the impact of over-consumption. The shortage of oil resources during the 1973 embargo, when placed into the context of a grounded and growing environmental awareness, profoundly changed the way in which people in the United States perceived energy.

The most considerable topic in recent news is what we are discussing now. From my point of view the constant hike in oil prices are not an individual mistake. We are also responsible for this. In my point of view people should be more aware about the limited sources. People in India should be more careful in using this precious resource. If we consider some basic points we should help our government in tackling with this major problem.

(1) We should stop using our vehicles for small purpose like using it while going for hair cut.

(2) If we are aware about the problem that our country is facing we should share the awareness with those who are far away from it.

(3) We should off the engines of our vehicles every single time when their is a red signal or when we are talking with someone.

At present days the usage of vehicles is more important that is people and even me also very much dependent on vehicle. That is the usage of this vehicle became an important role in our life.

But to reduce the usage of oils we can follow some steps instead of giving a speech to others we have to implement ourself:

* Byke is useful for everyone.

* Long years back everyone used to use cycles right.

* Using of cycles is really good for health right that everyone knows and we are reading from 1st class.

* But somewhat it is better to use vehicles that we can reach earlier to our places compared to cycles.

* But the people who are habitat to vehicle they are totally dependent on vehicles EXAMPLE:for going to shops, colleges, temples, etc, . Which is nearer to our house (But what I'm saying is really correct think yourself) (right or wrong).

* Doing like this. The man becomes totally lazy. And by this many problems are also coming like obesity that means instead of walking, and we wake up late also because thinking that we are having our vehicle we can reach our place within number of minutes. But if we don't have vehicle we wake up early and go by bus and it is somewhat difficult for us to go by walk but it is good for our health.

* And the using of more vehicles the oil is wasting more and more and that's why the oil rate is increasing day by day.

At present we are enjoying but for future generations the will be not there at present now in our's generation only the oil is increased that means it is less (less means in the sense it is decreasing the ratio of oil's).

Conclusion:* try to avoid vehicles as much as possible.

*Try to go by walk to your nearest places friends and implement it and let us give a bright future to our next generation.

Hi friend.

I think oil is one of most important energy for global. I think if food, cloth, home is primary require of human being than education, oil is secondary. However we cannot stop the increase of oil price if we increase the demand gradually because we know price=consumption/invest. Other points are:

1. Unnecessary use of oil by young people.

2. Use the old vehicle which is not valid for drive.

3. Government should increase to provide licence age. It should be 19+.

4. Government is under paralysis situation hence should not blame in this matter (relationship with irrelevant country).

Now a days it is common that after few months the prices of oil rise suddenly.

We need to deal it with simple way that we must use to Utilize our resources optimally.

In our daily life we generally use bike, car for reaching to our offices to improve our Life style as well and we want to avoid the public transportation. We need to use public transport as well by which the demand for oil directly affects.

Hiking of oil price is hot burning issue in today's India. The reason for this is well known for us so in regard to issue I would like add my voice for the prevention of rising rates of oil. We can make it possible by adopting simple conservatives methods which I mentioned below.

1. Switch off your engines when there is red signal.

2. Get your vehicle checked with pollution control department.

3. Switch on to the lPg/cng facilitated vehicle.

4. Use public transport for office or college at least thrice a week.

5. Try switch on to the renewable sources such as instead of using kerosene cookers try to use solar cookers.

6. Instead of going short distances by vehicle try to go by walk which really improves your health.

7. Government should encourage hydrogen fueled vehicles. As hydrogen having high calorific value and also burning in presence of oxygen does not cause pollution.

8. Government should encourage for switching of renewable sources for production of energy.

These are some factors which can help reduction of usage of petrol and and its subsidiaries by the demands decreases and also rates.

Hello Friend,

I think this topic should come across through news, so that government would know the impact of the high oil prices in India.

On their side we Can control on highly usage of oil in day to day life, now a days everybody uses so many resources even for small task, in which Oil is used as a fuel.

We can minimize the Oil consumption by using easy method, like bicycles to cover the minimum distance, which will not only control the oil consumption but will make you healthy and active as well.

Moreover it will be 50% contribution by reducing the oil consumption is in Ozon layer protection, which is the most powerful reason to save our nature.

The hike in oil prices is a much debated topic now-a-days. You see anshans, road jams, strikes in maidens or roads every time oil price is hiked. But I support the hike in oil prices. How much and till when can the Indian government pay on behalf of a citizen? For a citizen it merely is an increase from 60 to 70 to 75 Rs/litre but for the government it is the same multiplied by the population of India. It comes out to be in crores of crores of rupees. The reason for this hike are the people themselves. Given the limited resources, people are not even bothered. There is a car/2 wheeler for every one or two people. The rapid increase in demand of oil is the only reason for the hike in oil prices. Car pools, non polluting vehicles, public transport are according to me, if they can be used and are feasible; cheaper, safer, convenient and obviously better and efficient means of transport.

Hello All,

Raising of Oil prices once or twice in a month or so is really an extra burden for the common man. The cost of every other product in market are raising like a Helium Balloon. And we can see that some of the Countries in the world have come out with their own technologies for their citizens. One of the example id in China the people would prefer the tend for Bicycles for travelling less distances.

As every man has his own ideas they have to come out with different ideas in saving the usage of fuel. Even in a recent interview our PM of India has informed that the increase of prices of Oil is totally depending on Foreign market and there it results in fluctuation in prices.

So what we can do is to reduce the usage of Fuel at every step of their daily life to adjust with the fluctuating prices.

Hi friends,

In the recent scenario its a major issue for all of us.

Solutions like use of bicycles, rickshaw, public transport, as well as production of bio fuel should be taken into consideration. Depreciation of the value of rupees is directly proportional to high oil prices and vicevarsa. Population growth is also plays a vital role of high oil prices. I have a different concept for solution, Govt should take some steps to control the consumption of petrol or Diesel. Govt should give subsidy for fuel but to a certain extent. Should fix a maximum limit of Subsidized consumption for each family & should issue a petroleum card for every family with a specified limit according to the size of the family. Up-to this limit a subsidized amount should be charged, suppose Actual price of petrol is 75, subsidized amount would be approximately 65, and after this limit Govt should charge a premium rate as 80 or 85.

So that Govt could be able to control the consumption of petrol or diesel. And could be able to fight with inflation.

First reasons of high pricing of oil I think our country's economic condition that.

Is bad due to market is unstable that is resulting in weakness of rupee in world Market.

Second I think large consumption of oil results in high demand of oil.

I think the problem of high pricing oil can be solved technically, like we can use electricity, solar energy that are renewable source of energy.

Hi. Friends.

According to me, by reducing the use of petroleum oil we can easily tackle with this problem. I this this is our problem and we can solve it by our self. We can use public transport for local travel. Car Pooling is also one of best way of reducing the problem of fuel. By these way we not just only save oil by save our planet from pollution and can take breath in clean and fresh air.

Day by day the oil price in our country keeps on increasing. So we as the citizens, must take some steps from our side to reduce its usage by which we shall reduce the price. Some of the necessary steps are:

1). We must not use our vehicle for a shorter distance.
2). We must use public transports.
3). Highly efficient vehicles must be used.
4). Various forms of energy usage should be practised.
5). Government should lower tax levitation on oil.

Hi friends,

As per my idea I want to tell something about high oil price. In India is the main factor is that its economy is very dawn. In my idea, India should opt the technology of Brazil because India is the second country that produces sugarcane. We can use the bio technology with help of science by making C2H5OH. And we can use this technique with help of mechanics. Its benefit following.

(1) Decreasing in carbon dioxide.

(2) Reduction in the global warming.

(3) Save our currency.

(4) Stopping the pollution.

(5) Save our globe from sinking from sea level causing global warming.

And this my fact.
