WP 2014/07: Long- and short-run price asymmetries in the Italian energy market: the case of gasoline and heating gasoil

1 Posted by - 22 dicembre 2014 - Working Papers

Using monthly data from 1994 to 2012 we study the long-run relation between the pre-tax retail prices of petrol and heating gasoil with crude price and the nominal exchange rate. We find a strongly significant long-run relation. We then use the nonlinear ARDL (NARDL) model to assess the asymmetries on both the short- and long-run elasticities. The estimation results confirm the presence of a strong asymmetry in the long-run elasticities.
