To manage high petrol prices without cutting taxes, India can adopt strategies like diversifying oil imports for better terms, enhancing refinery efficiency to lower production costs, promoting alternative fuels and EVs to reduce petrol demand, expanding strategic reserves for price stability, improving public transport, and monitoring markets to ensure fair pricing. Additionally, innovative approaches like promoting carpooling, using smart traffic systems, incentivizing fuel-efficient vehicles, developing a local biofuels industry, launching fuel conservation campaigns, and green urban planning can further reduce reliance on petrol, benefiting both the economy and the environment.

Large oil companies cannot let go of their resources or natural gas. So they are pushing for blue hydrogen, so they can continue to pumping fossil fuels out of the ground for decades to come. China and Europe would compete on green hydrogen, however, most likely with solar domination; China would control the green hydrogen market. According to news, they have started investing in large scale electrolysers, which would reduce costs in say 10 years. Europe has offshore wind plus hydrogen, but that cannot be scaled around the world. Solar plus electrolyser is the way to go.
