Abstract

German Abstarct: Dieses Papier ergänzt eine frühere Studie des Autors (2010) über den Treibstoffmarkt in Österreich. Es bewertet die seither vorgenommenen institutionellen Änderungen, insbesondere die Einführung eines auf mehr Transparenz bedachten Spritpreisrechners und die Festlegung eines einzigen Zeitpunktes am Tag (12 Uhr mittags), an dem Tankstellen Preiserhöhungen vornehmen können.

English Abstract: This is a follow-up analysis to an earlier study by the author (2010) concerning the market of gasoline products in Austria. The current paper evaluates the institutional developments since, in particular the introduction of a transparency-enhancing petrol price calculator and the limitation of daily price increases to one specific hour (at 12 noon) for all types of gas stations.
