Market Summary:

The market of oil has seen a steady rise ever since its foundation. With transport facilities becoming smoother than never before and the affordability of vehicles have ensured a steep rise in the demand of crude oil. However, the gradual depletion of natural resources and rising concern about its conservation and optimum utilization have resulted in a decline in supply thereby resulting in a steep price hike. The price of ration oil too says a similar story, with business organizations rationing the limited supplies to competing customers and thereby boosting their profits.

Price Structure:

The price of oil has seen a steep rise ever since the disruptions faced in the 1970s in the supply of oil. With global crises like Persian Gulf conflict, the prices of oil have gone up like never before, stretching the graph sky high.

However, owing to a decline in its supply and its contribution to pollution, diesel and other pollution free fuels are gradually taking its place.
