"Finally, we should help developing nations like China and India curb their exponentially increasing consumption of oil and natural gas, which is driving world prices higher." - Governor Bobby Jindal, U.S. State of Louisiana
India is widely regarded as one of the world’s largest fuel consumers. Interestingly, it is India's rapid growth and huge population which has meant that fuel is devoured with such rigor, and often consumption needs cannot be met by the intermittent power supply. Equally, the erratic demand and supply of energy, combined with the use of an unsustainable energy source such as coal, has long been a problem, not only for India, but for many other countries as well.
