Answer to Question #69012 in Other Economics for Joshua Ng
Suppose war broke out in the Middle East and gasoline and diesel fuel prices began rising. Jeepney drivers and bus owners feared future oil shortages if war cut off the flow of oil, and they rushed to fill up their fuel tanks. In this case, as the price fuel increased, jeepney drivers and bus owners bought more, not less. Is this an exception to the law of demand? Use the terminology of the demand and supply model to explain your answer.
Described rise in fuel demand was short-term. However, as pre-purchased fuel will be consumed soon, drivers will need to buy other portions. And in this case, according to dependences between demand and supply, petrol sales are expected to decline. Therefore, primary rise in fuel sales with a rising price can be explained as an exception to the law of demand.
I’ve used Assignment Expert twice now, and I’m a full fledged fan. This morning I had a crunching 7 hour deadline for a huge programming assignment I forgot was due, and turned to them for help. The estimate was affordable and easy to pay for through PayPal. Shortly after, an expert got to work on the problem at hand. The operator was in constant contact with me throughout the entire process, and everything went quickly and smoothly. After looking through the assignment, I was happy to find that everything ran very smoothly, and no shortcuts were taken/no requirements were omitted. I wish I could say more about this service. It’s truly a game changer and has saved my back more than once now.
