Energy efficiency standards based on product attributes may interact with market conditions and affect the overall stringency of the standards. In this paper analyze the interaction between gasoline prices and the redesigned and tightened federal fuel economy standards.
Using a unique city-level panel on the daily air pollution index (API) and fine-scale meteorological data from 2009 to 2013 in China, examine the existence and the magnitude of spatial spillover effects of urban air pollution in Chinese cities.
