Fuel Prices, Travel, Environment, Etc

It may be a co-incidence that the government decided to increase fuel prices to fall in line with World Environment Day. But it gives a message - fuel is most likely getting scarcer, and we need to do all that we can to cut down consumption.

Rising prices will eventually make people look at alternative means for commuting and travelling. The pricier the fuel tends to get, it is only natural that people with less disposable income will again fall back on public transport and other economic modes of travel(walking, cycling,..). But a better way to go with it is to pro-actively embrace low fuel consumption strategy.

The benefits of adopting to less consumption is many, but it needs to happen in a larger scale. The foremost important consequence to reduced fuel consumption is cleaner environment in the cities and improved health. Reduced consumption will also help keep the prices from shooting further north, which in turn prevents the prices of other everyday necessities from increasing.

More often than not, a little discipline and extra effort not to burn too much fuel, and using friendlier alternatives can make considerable differences. It could be simple things like leaving your car at home when going to neighbourhood grocery store, or car pooling or using public transport to get to work. These changes can also help in getting rid of sedentary lifestyle and make improvements in health and fitness. It is not really necessary to give tips about how to save oil, as most of us already know very well about it. But what is needed is some will to go ahead. Let's join together to reduce fuel consumption and move to healthier means of commuting, which will help build a better world in the long run.
