Cutting oil import bill... By Murtaza

01 January, 2014

I think that the oil import bill can be checked and brought down if fuel saving measures are adopted in the public and private sectors. Adoption of these measures can help the country in minimising the consumption of petrol and diesel.

The federal and provincial governments should give consideration to the benefits of this new device I read about recently, which can help save up to 25 percent of fuel consumption. The petrol, diesel and CNG prices are continuously increasing. Adoption of fuel saving measures can certainly go a long way towards reducing the growing oil import bill besides helping motorists with limited resources in keeping the fuel expenses within reasonable limits without compromising on the travelling they have to undertake daily for business or other purposes.

Hopefully the Chambers of Commerce and Industry would give this direly needed adoption of fuel saving measures due consideration on priority basis. Contribution towards keeping the oil import bill on the lower side to the maximum extent possible would be a national service, both individually and collectively.
