Department of Economics at Boise State University Presents:
Rockets and Feathers: The Speed of Price Adjustment to Cost Changes in the U.S. Gasoline Market
Najmeh Kamyabi, PhD
3:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Wednesday, November 8, 2017
Imagination Lab, MBEB Room 2302
Using weekly crude oil and retail gasoline prices, during the period from Jan. 2008 to Dec. 2015, this paper examines the hypothesis of asymmetric pricing for the gasoline market in the United States. An asymmetric response in the gasoline market is found for eight cities out of nine and at the national level. However, the adjustment speed tends to vary for different types of gasoline (regular, premium) and across cities.
