Impact of Automotive Emissions Regulations on Gasoline Demand 730515

This paper reviews trends in car design and usage that have affected gasoline consumption in the past and discusses such factors as emission controls that will affect future consumption, especially in light-duty vehicles. Between 1973-1985, demand is expected to increase 50%, and perhaps 70% if the present 1976 oxides of nitrogen emission standard stays in effect. The paper explores ways to moderate this demand, in terms of relaxation of emission standards, increased use of smaller cars, and increased use of public transportation.
