    Increasing the price of petrol is the best way to solve growing traffic and pollution problems.
    To what extent do you agree or disagree?

    Nowadays, governments worldwide seem to take increasing petrol price as the most efficient way to reduce traffic jam and environmental problems. Although some argue that this is an ineffective policy with many weaknesses for citizens to break the laws or it can cause the increase of other goods’ price, I believe raising petrol expense is the simplest way to reduce urban problem.

    On the one hand, increasing petrol cost may lead to the change of car and other vehicles’ prices as it does not only bring about the higher cost of special decorations of vehicles, but also put heavier taxes on them. Therefore, the prices of a car for sale can become twice as much as its original cost. This may be a cruel policy, but it is clear that many people have given up on buying a car as it costs too much for the services, taxes, and petrol. Instead, people choose to use public transportation such as buses and surf way to travel, which is much more economical than using personal vehicles.

    On the other hand, the more people use petrol to run their cars, the more the environment is destroyed. Vehicles using petrol have extremely harmful exhaust fumes, which contains many polluted gases such as sodium dioxide and carbon dioxide. Those gases are not only cause people many permanent and dangerous illnesses, but also increase the Earth’s temperature, destroy the ecological systems, puncture the ozone layer. In addition, the petrol processing industry also causes much harm to the natural environment, especially the aquatic ecosystems.

    In conclusion, while it can lead to many disadvantages such as the higher cost of many other goods, heavier taxes when the governments increase the petrol price, I believe the advantages it brings can always outweigh the minors in the long run.
