But the public is not going to reduce their consumption. As of now the movement of people transport vehicles has come down. But goods transportation is going on as usual.
These days all the people got accustomed to the usage of their own vehicles and they will not go for public transport. As such we will not see any difference in the consumption of fuel even though the prices increase. People should think of using public transportation and reduce their fuel consumption. Then there may be some change in the attitude of the governments and try to reduce the tax part.
We are undergoing a tough time.
We have discussed this topic (oil price hike) several times, - should we discuss this topic anymore?
The next step is to switch to electric vehicles that do not require such fuels. It is expensive and accessible only to high officials, rich people, and big businessmen.
The next step is the most important and that everyone can do together. Gather the people of each area and prepare and sign each mass petition to their people's representatives. Ask for fuel sales to be included in the GST. Our MPs should ask the central government to include these oils in GST. Then the petrol prices will be halved.
[It should also be noted that at present the VAT (value-added tax) of the states ranges from 16% to 38.1%. Sikkim has the lowest (15.7%) and Maharashtra has the highest at 38.1%) So the Finance Ministers of the states will not allow it in the GST meeting.]
small drops make a mighty ocean
This price hike is not going to stop, so it is better to take the right decision. However, those people who have a good source of income will not mind a price hike
