Now days everybody is complaining about the hike oil prices, but there is something good things about price hikings. I recently read one article which i found really intresting. In business and life, money drives everything; a sad fact of life, but this has become our passion, our motivation, our livelihood. In life, if something is inexpensive, you will take it for granted and write it off as insignificant. It is not until our bottom lines are effected that we actually start to use our brains for solutions. For example, gasoline if it becomes cheap, everyone hopped on board and consumed it like nothing else. We've known for years this resource is limited, unfortunately this has come to bite us in the ass; our economy is so dependent on the resource, we are caught in a vicious cycle. I hope that in future our innovative mind would come up with new alternative source of energy till then we go to conserve our existing energy.
