Impacts of Higher Gasoline Prices on Rural Households

Efforts to curtail petroleum imports have focused. on reducing gasoline consumption because private motor vehicles are viewed not only as significant energy-users, but inefficient in certain transportation situations as well. Also, any adverse impacts on income and disruptions in lifestyle are thought to be minimized by concentrating on this passenger transportation mode. Both higher gasoline prices and stringent rationing have been discussed as ways to achieve this reduction. Currently, raising prices seems the most probable energy policy. Thus, this paper will focus on the impact of higher gasoline prices on rural households.
