Camels instead of the Internal Combustion Engine

Now this is curious. America is moving down to small cars because of rising oil prices. On the other hand, for a country like India, where the cost of any oil price increase compared to income is dramatically bigger than for Americans, what do you do? Answer is simple, you purchase more Camels. I quote:

Farmers in the Indian state of Rajasthan are rediscovering the humble camel. As the cost of running gas-guzzling tractors soars, even-toed ungulates are making a comeback, raising hopes that a fall in the population of the desert state’s signature animal can be reversed.
