Students can be taught on the impacts of foreign oil dependency on the countries economy. University lecturers can also engage in research that can b help in coming up with cheaper sources of energy and incorporate students in such research according to Greenberg (2007). The community needs to be sensitized on the dangers of oil dependency in their homes and be encouraged to use other alternatives which are cost effective. The average persons such as experts in matters of energy can educate the community through meetings on how to use solar or wind as sources of energy. These experts also need to write books, magazines and other form s of literature on the disadvantages of using foreign oil as the only source of energy. Companies need to generate news stories demonstrating to the ordinary people on how to install renewable energy sources in their homes. Local groups need to come together and sensitize people on the issue of global economy resulting from dependency on foreign oil. Local groups should mobilize public opinion against national policies and commitments which favor the use of foreign oil
The average person can also contribute the problem by encouraging reduction on the use of oil as a source of energy. Individuals should reduce oil consumption at homes by increasing the use of solar energy and wind energy. For instance, solar energy can be used as a source of power for television, radio, and lighting. At the places of work, the use of oil as a source of energy can also be reduced by the increased use of solar energy which is readily available during the day. There is also the need for everyone engaged in the transport industry to recognize the dangers of using oil as the sole source of energy.
