GARCH (1, 1) model is used to analyze the volatility among the variable. Oil price, Oil supply and oil demand are stationary at 1st Difference through ADF test. It is found through Generalized Autoregressive Conditional Heteroskedasticity (GARCH1, 1) that oil demand has a significant effect on the oil price. Government should make a proper plan and procedure according to economic growth and requirement which would help to maintain the equilibrium of oil demand and supply and decreased the impact of oil price volatility on the economic growth. Exploration the oil alternatives that steadily decrease the impact of the oil price volatility, will make potential of the economy stronger to face volatility crisis.
