The world today is facing an extreme crude oil crisis. Petroleum products in the primary form are largely consumed for transportation and industrial purposes. This paper deals with the development of a system dynamics model to simulate the rise in fuel consumption in a district in India. The main aim of the paper is to study the influence of dynamic factors: Population, Fuel prices, Gross domestic product (GDP) growth, and Segment wise increase in fuel consumption. The model is used to simulate the fuel requirements for the two decades from 2011. The simulation results have aided the formulation of policies to check the rising fuel consumption, based on the projected figures. Although the input parameters are at the regional level, the influence of the before mentioned factors can be generalized to the global level.
