a person who goes to work will use the same amount of fuel traversing to his place of work.saying that increasing the prices will make people use it judiciously is useless unless and until the public transport system improves.
th public transport system is pathetic excluding the recently developed metro system.the ministers should be made to pay their own fuel bills with their salaries to understand the impact of a Rs3 increase in petrol prices.
as mentioned in the newspaper the govt. earns rs 15 as excise duty and rs 7 as sales tax.why cant the govt reduce its taxes.why cant the consumers see the part where the govt is absorbing the losses.either the burden is passed on to the oil companies or the customers.

You know all the taxes that we pay are used up to give freebies to the so called lower class to grab their votes. We all end up paying again for the infrastructure developement by way of Toll tax to use a good road, education cess and what not. In the end we all end up as suckers.

In such a scenario bombing the fuel pumps is not the solution. The bullseye is elsewhere.

So long....

IMO, you shouldn't make such statements on internet. Police or media can track down this information and can use against you in future. Most of the information on internet is blogged and archived.

Take care.

then your fuel cost goes down to zero because after your engine is toast you will ride a bicycle.

It seems that soon we will have to open a forum dedicated for "Indian bicycle scene".

Perhaps our own GTO can open it by buying a Mercedes bicycle?
