Abstract

Der vorliegende Aufsatz untersucht die Auswirkungen der von einigen Mineralölunternehmen gewährten Preisgarantien auf die Benzinpreise. Auf Grundlagen der Daten der Markttransparenzstelle des Bundeskartellamtes wurde anhand einer Differenz-von-Differenzen Analyse untersucht, ob die insbesondere von Shell gewährten Preisgarantien eine preiserhöhende Wirkung haben. Es zeigt sich, dass in den Gebieten um die Shell-Tankstellen die Preise nach Einführung der Preisgarantien signifikant angestiegen sind.
