Increases in oil prices since 1973 have had a serious effect on the economies of many developing countries which are dependent upon imported fuels. During 1981 and 1982, a study was carried out by the Overseas Unit of TRRL, working in collaboration with the Ministry of Transport and Communications of the Republic of Kenya, to examine a number of policies for conserving fuel in the transport sector. This report describes the part of that study which examined the effect of price on sales of petrol and light diesel fuel.
