The Price Of Oil Has Been Increasing. What Would You Suggest To Solve The Crisis?

409 words - 2 pages

Rising oil price has a profound impact on people's life everywhere. Therefore, an recent issue involving the price of oil and what should the government do has been brought up. Personally, I think the government should issue free public transit and encourage more people to ride their bicycles to work. The government should also search for other alternative sources a energy to replace oil in the near future.The reason oil price has been so high in the last few years ...view middle of the document...

Therefore, I think the government should make public transit free. I have several friends who no longer drive their car because the price of oil is so high. Instead, they take the bus or ride their bicycle to school. With fewer cars on the road, there will be less competition for oil; which, would then result in a lower oil price.Another solution I have for the government is to search for alternative source of energy. Government in other countries have already began using other natural energy. For example, France has a long history of using windmill. Not only is it on effective way of generating electricities, but also is free of charge. In Canada, similar projects can also take place. It is already a well-known fact that there are cars which use hydrogen instead of oil as their source of fuel. One advantage in using water is that it is clean and have no harmful effect on the environment. In addition, Canada is already tree-quarters surrounded by oceans and rivers, making water very easy to acquire.Clearly, there are many ways of solving this crisis. The odds of everyone having a hydrogen powered car in the next five years seems very unlikely, but in the meantime, people should do their best not driving their cars to work. Even if it means they have to dust off that bike that they never used before.
