Preiszyklen im Kraftstoffmarkt - Wettbewerb oder Kollusives Verhalten?


  • Dewenter, Ralf
  • Linder, Melissa
  • Schwalbe, Ulrich


Die häufigen Preisänderungen der Tankstellen während eines Tages führen zu einem sehr spezifischen zyklischen Verhalten der Preise. Das Papier untersucht die zeitliche Abfolge der Zyklen und das Verhalten verschiedener Tankstellenmarken. Daneben werden die Zyklen auch mithilfe eines Markov Switching Regressionsmodell untersucht. Die zentrale Fragestellung ist hierbei, ob diese Zyklen durch normales Wettbewerbsverhalten entstehen können oder ob ein kollusives Verhalten hinter den Zyklen steckt.
