Oil and natural gas are non-renewable sources of energy. There have been numerous attempts to minimize the danger of depletion of these two resources. Scientists have proposed many reasons for importance of their conservation and its convenient practical methods.

Oil and natural gas conservation involvesthe use of these resources in a better and well-organized manner with respect to economic, social and ambient expenses and rewards, contributing to an efficient energy utilization and reduction of loss.

This article evaluates the ways in which oil and natural gas can be conserved, and describes the expected results of these conservation measures

Conservation of oil and natural gas remains a problem in all the world countries. One of the most evident examples is a global increase in its price .

Consequently, each of us faces the responsibility of conserving these scarce resources. This involves a support of governmental oil and natural gas protection politics, because each single family should understand the importance of economy.

In order to control the use of oil and natural gas, governments should accept a number of policies. Moreover, motor vehicle users are obliged to make sure that tires of their vehicles are well inflated. Condition of the tires should be checked at least once a month. By doing this, fuel consumption is decreased by about 3%.

Vehicle users should also plan the transportation route in advance. If possible, people should consider other means of transportation: riding a bicycle, walking or boarding a bus when necessary.

Another important method of saving is an optimization of the vehicle speed level. Statistics show that fuel consumption decreases greatly when one drives at a speed of about 60 km/h. At the same time, lower speed is a safety measure. Drivers are also advised to use air conditioners, as it decreases fuel consumption while driving at high speeds, especially on the highway where the road is smooth....
