New Evidence on Trends in Vehicle Emissions
AbstractAggregate vehicle emissions have fallen even though total miles driven have increased. This article uses two new cross-sectional databases to study vehicle emissions profiles. I find evidence of large differences in vehicle emissions across model years, makes, and sizes. These findings are relevant for evaluating the benefits of previous regulatory efforts and for predicting the benefits of further vehicle regulation.
