Economic and controlled consumption of fossil fuel can help conserving our natural resources. Following ways and measures can conserve our resources:
(i) Vehicles should be driven at constant and moderate speed.
(ii) Engines should be switched off at traffic lights or other temporary halts.
(iii) Proper and regular maintenance of vehicles.
(iv) Vehicle pooling can reduce number of vehicles plying on road thus less consumption of fuel.
(v) At home gas stoves should be cleaned properly and burners should not be left burning unnecessarily.
(vi) Pressure cookers should be preferred to pans. If pans are being used, they should be properly covered and their bottoms should not have deposits of burnt oil.
(vii) Small pans and burners should be used and pulses etc. should be dipped in water before cooking them.
