Instead we should minimize our need for that. If we use it less, the value would certainly go down. Think, if people of India decides to use cycle or alternative method of transport, the petrol pump wallah would be doing nothing.
As it ranges in essential commodity, we cannot go on fighting if we are dependent on others. Till self dependency or minimum use policy is undertaken self by Indian people, nothing concrete could be achieved in this regard. Govt too can discourage petrol vehicle manufacturers, limit the vehicle no per year production, limit import of petrol etc are actions much needed now. Till then, bear the heat please !!!
