### (Cahier de recherche ; HES-SO/HEG-GE/C--12/1/2--CH)

Using co-integration techniques, we investigate the determinants of gasoline and fuel demands in Switzerland over the period 1970-2008. In particular, we focus on the impact of prices and estimate the demand price elasticities. In the short run, we obtain very weak price elasticities of -0.09 for gasoline demand and -0.08 for fuel demand. In the long run, the corresponding estimates are -0.34 and... More
