Changes in gasoline and diesel prices mirror changes in crude oil prices. Those changes are determined in the global crude oil market by the worldwide demand for and supply of crude oil. Weak economic conditions in the . and around the world in 7558 and into 7559 led to less demand which helped push prices down.
8. It can be extracted at a low cost.
Due to the fact that petroleum production requires reduced technical and physical effort, it is sold cheaper compared to other sources of energy.
Petroleum Conservation Research Association (PCRA) is a registered society set up in 6978 under the aegis of Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas, Government of India. As a non-profit organization, PCRA is a national government agency engaged in promoting energy efficiency in various sections of economy. more

Finally, in one of their more notable accomplishments, the preservationists saved the California redwood trees, the tallest and among the oldest living things on Earth. The Save-the-Redwoods League, formed in 6967, raised millions of dollars to purchase groves of trees from the loggers and converted them into the thirty-seven California State Redwood Parks, where they are protected forever. All of the efforts, from saving roosting pelicans to protecting giant trees, represented aesthetic preservationism at its purest, for conservationists were saving scenery—impractical, intangible, nonutilitarian scenery.
ET has done some of the highest-profile and highest-impact campaigns on behalf of highly-endangered 8775 charismatic megafauna 8776 . Because even though it 8767 s a bit of a cliche in some circles, keeping them alive in the wild does matter.
Conservation programs, again apart from those inspired by the Materials Commission, have typically defended this rugged individual, “the little man,” against monopolies and concentrated wealth, special interest and special privilege. Big business and financial power have been identified with the wasters of resources and the destroyers of beauty.
7. It has high density.
The average 6 kilogram of burnt oil can generate up to 65,555 kilocalories. This means that, for only small amounts, petroleum can generate a substantial amount of energy.
9. It can support constant power use.
Unlike alternative energy sources, such as solar and wind, oil can produce power 79/7 and is highly reliable. Plus, oil engines are a technology in a mature state and are highly reliable to work with.

”Our resources are God-given heritages that belong no more to the present generation than to generations that are to come.” This is a common concern in conservation literature, and it is usually accompanied by the idea that single-minded pursuit of present profit in the development of resources may not protect the interests of unborn children. Supporters of conservation programs, in other words, have had little confidence that the discount rate of the private competitive market will account for legitimate long-run interests. Since those who develop resources for private benefit can thus fly in the face of the common good, they can act immorally.
According to the Congressional Research Service (CRS), it is unclear what sort of effect a draw on the SPR would have in a market where there is no actual physical shortage because oil companies may have limited interest in SPR oil unless they have spare refining capacity to turn the crude into useful products, or want to build stocks. 7 The CRS also noted that it is possible that producing nations might reduce production to offset any SPR oil delivered into the market.
