Recently, there have been must debates about overwhelming traffic and pollution. One of the most concerned issues is whether we should use oil price as a method to inhibit this problem. In my own view, it’s quite difficult for people to decide whether to support or reject the statement above without a cautious analysis of sides, advantages and disadvantages.
To begin with, costs, in general, take an important factor in controlling the economics. In fact, administrated activities of authorities virtually try to alter, directly or indirectly, the value of products. There is no doubt that adjusting prices is an effective and conventional method. Concretely, with petrol, increasing the price of petrol will absolutely makes immediate affections such as decreasing transport consumption and inhibiting traveling. These obvious results seem to be a very convincing argument for those who support this proposal.
On the other hand, if people look at the other angle of the problem, it’s really clear to see many latent risks behind the method above. Raising petrol cost easily lead to the instability of others products’ price. In fact, almost all common products have the delivery processes which are inevitably using petrol. The truth is that dealing with this anticipated situation is far harder than the original one.
Next, looking back at the issue, in my opinion, this problem cannot be solely solved by polities. Otherwise, it’ll be easier if people have their own conscious awareness about traffic and environment in which they’re living. Instead of forcing people to do the right things, helping people know what are the right things to do is harder but far more effective. It will cost a long time of great effort but I think it’s totally worth.
All things considered, no one can alter the fact that dealing with major problems like traffic jam and pollution needs a long term combination of many methods. Clearly, increasing price of oil is a good one. However, I personally believe that the main factor always start from people.
