For a long period, the government was regulating the fuel prices and as a result, it was offering heavy subsidies on such fuels. This could not have persisted for perpetuity. Rather than dealing with it in an unruly way after a decade or so it is better the economy deals with the spikes in fuel prices right now, as this will help the market to get adjusted to the current market situation rather than being taken aback by a sudden fuel hike.

For growth and development of an economy in the long run, deregulation of not only fuel prices but also of other commodities is necessary. However, at the same time, essential commodities on which poor man thrives is something for which government intervention is required. Thus as we perceive it, for the correct, balanced and accelerated future growth of our economy, deregulation is and will be the key.
