    well petroleum is one of the cheapest fuel sources (compared to solar, hydrogen, ethanol, biomass, etc).

    but it is very bad for the environment because the incomplete combustion of petroleum creates oxides of nitrogen and also carbon monoxide PLUs carbon dioxide which increases the rate of global warming
