Increasing the price of petrol is the best way to solve growing traffic and pollution problems.

Some people think that raising
oil
prices will reduce growing traffic and air pollution. Other people think that increasing prices will cause chaos.
This
essay believes that increasing the prices will cause issues. Obviously, increasing the
oil
prices is one of the latest solutions, because a large part of the community will oppose it. For years, people have been using
oil
for their vehicles, and 90% of the vehicles in the world are
oil
-powered vehicles. If prices are increased, people will not have enough money to buy
oil
. Probably, after
this
increase, governments will force people to buy electric vehicles.
However
, those vehicles are very expensive and people cannot afford to buy them. There are millions of vehicles in the world now and it takes a lot of time and work to destroy or try to reduce them. As a solution, vehicle companies can reduce the emission level of the vehicles they produce and reduce the level of waste from their vehicles. Or governments can decrease the prices for people to use public transportation more. In general,
instead
of putting people in a difficult situation, governments can solve these problems with the car companies and among themselves,
otherwise
it will cause problems as stated in the explanation.
