While deploying the contract, you can specify the amount of gas you want to send with the transaction. On the bottom left of the page where your write your code, you can see a slider bar for Select Fee, Just use the slider to increase/ decrease the gas you want to send.

  • Isnt this the gas price - the amount of ether per gas unit- not the amount of gas?
