A commercial kerosene, low freezing point kerosene (JP-1), and JP-4 are discussed as possible commercial transport jet fuels. Relative performance of these fuels is given. Estimated demand for a commercial jet fuel is small, and it is concluded that adequate quantities of any of the three fuels could be supplied by the petroleum industry. Relative fuel prices on the West and Gulf Coasts are discussed. It is predicted that kerosene and JP-4 will have about equal prices to the airlines. It is concluded that JP-1 type fuel would be the most expensive of the three fuels.
