The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of crude oil prices on energy consumption and the strategies that should be done to overcome the energy crisis in Indonesia.

The population in this study are types of crude oil in Indonesia as many as 52 kinds, the sampling technique used was purposive sampling. Data analysis tool using simple linear regression. The results showed that the price of crude oil effect a positive and significant on energy consumption in Indonesia, meaning that although the price of crude oil rises, it will not lower the amount of energy consumption, so that the government's efforts to reduce energy consumption by removing energy subsidies would not affect the reduction in energy consumption. Strategies that should be done is to make the conversion from fossil energy to electrical energy because electrical energy is a multifunctional energy source that can be converted into an other energy as needed. Indonesia has a lot of electrical energy sources, namely: the sun, geothermal, wind, waterfalls, water rivers, sea water, uranium, litter, cow manure, human body temperature, seaweed, and microalgae.
