Now a day the petrol price is getting higher and higher, is this show that we are going to run out of oil? When petrol price keep on rising it will affect other material price increase. As we now most of the vehicle depend on oil as main source to running. More over the alternative energy such as solar energy still not practical to use widely. Meanwhile people and still searching alternative source to replace the petrol. It may takes long times to find the solution. Perhaps the solution can come out in within 5 year. What do you think? Are we going to running out of petrol? Do you think that we going to get the replacement source for fossil fuel ?

Though the petrol reserves may which are held by Russia and its neighbours, USA and Gulf countries and some of the african countries may last for 100 years, the price rise is nothing but black mailing knowing that there is a greater demand than supply. The governments and scientists all over the world should sit and plan for new and renewable energy like uisng vegetable oils in plac of petrol, preparing the solar cells which can make the vehicle to move.

In Brazil they are already using some oil for which seeds can be grown. In India cotton seed oil seem to be working. It is still in the experimental stage. Elsewhere they are trying different seeds to make oil which will be equivalent to petrol.

Well,nowadays the price of petrol in my country is going up. People don't feel very comfortable about that. I'm also thinking about why this happened? What's up with the petrol all over the world? I think we really use up a lot of petrol in the past years and we might have wasted much. So if we don't pay enough attention to this from now on,the situation would be very dangerous in the future. Because raising the price can't be the right way.It can only control the situation for a while but not forever. We need to do sth or explore some other things instead.

Waste cannot be prevent easly but at least they have to come out with effective alternative replacement, before World war III or IV happen.
