Oil price hike is one of the major problems in the country. To help in the production of oil we must utilize whatever things we have abundantly and use it to lessen if not totally eradicate the problem. This project will try to increase the sources of oil to lower its price and I recommend the use of plant oil like oil from Jackfruit seeds because plant oil is healthier. It answers the following questions

-Is this project beneficial to everyone?
