He said that a large hue and cry has been raised after the oil companies raised the rates of gasoline recently by Rs 7.50 per litre. He said that it is high time that we realize that 80% of the oil in the earth’s crust will be exhausted by 2040, and with the oil prices having shot up to more than $100 per barrel, the solution lies in promoting Bio-fuels which have a potential for achieving simultaneously economic, poverty reduction and environmental goals as they also help mitigate green house gases and India today is importing 60% of its required crude oil which is furthering the increase in the fiscal deficit.
