Ridiculous Petrol Prices

June 8th, 2011 posted by admin

Petrol prices are hurting many at the pump. Will there be any relief? Probably not; petrol is high and will continue to go higher. I have a BMW lease business, and I noticed that my business is going down as well because of this ridiculous increase in petrol prices. People prefer using more public transport over buying petrol for their cars. When ever I go to the petrol pump and I see lo and behold the prices have go up again, £1.20 per liter, wow!

The world is changing; we live in a different world than 20 years ago. China and Indian are rapidly growing and consuming a lot of fuel. This is one of the main reasons we are paying for fuel the way we are.

Off shore drilling is not helping much to offset the increase of prices. The best thing that we can do is to conserve not consume oil. If you own an old car or truck it can be difficult to deal with the high price of petrol. It may be time to cut down on how much driving you do; the more you reduce your driving the more money you will save.

A radical way to offset the fuel cost is to put a smaller engine in your vehicle or even a diesel engine. Diesel engines are more efficient than regular petrol engines. Diesel is also cleaner than it used to be. There are several changes you can do to adapt your car or truck to the high petrol prices. It is possible to have a vehicle that is fuel efficient.

The reality is that conservation is the only solution to our fuel problems today. When we learn to live on less fuel we are able to save ourselves lots of money. Drive a little less, walk to places, take proper care of your cars and don’t drive without a reason. The sooner we learn to conserve fuel the better it will be for all of us.
