dc.description.abstractThis paper investigates the structure of the global crude oil market and develops a model to examine U.S. demand for crude oil and to estimate the short-term price elasticity of demand for crude oil in the U.S. Historically, :fluctuations in the price of crude oil have resulted from events of a political, economic, and/or financial nature. This paper describes five features of the world crude oi1 market that are important in understanding how this market functions: product characteristics, operation and refining, reserves and supply, demand, and price. Finally, this paper uses a modified form of the Nerlove lagged-variable model to predict U.S. demand for crude oil. The dependent variable in this model is U.S. per-capita demand for crude oil. The independent variables in this model include the real price of U.S. crude oil, U.S. per-capita real Gross Domestic Product (GDP), U.S. per-capita demand for crude oil lagged one year, and the U.S. energy-consumption-to-GDP ratio. The exponent of the price term in the model is a measure of short-term price elasticity of demand. Therefore, the model can be used to measure the short-term price elasticity of demand for U.S. crude oil. Additionally, this paper will examine the trend in short-term price elasticity of demand for U.S. crude oil, compare these values to previous estimates, and attempt to explain any deviations about the trend.
