Full market liberalization of fuel prices

Full market liberalization of fuel prices

Debate the pros and cons of full market liberalization of fuel prices

Points

Full liberalisation would lead to such hardships for ordinary people - as the cost of living starts to respond to higher fuel costs - that it could well trigger another sustained protest and possibly the collapse of transitional structures.

In the end, people need to pay the real cost of energy, especially as this also provides a spur to the pursuit of alternative green energy sources. While fuel remains cheaper, the incentives for finding alternatives are weaker.
