Section A
(Answer all questions.)
Question 1
[33.34 marks]
A blowout of the BPDeepwater Horizon oil-well in April 2010 led to the largestmarine oil spill in history,
lasting until July of that year. Researchers would like to analyse whether consumers reacted to the
disaster by reducing their consumption of BP branded petrol during the oil spill. They collected data
on the prices and quantities sold at BP-branded and non-BP petrol stations across zip codes (postal
codes; small local areas) in the US. Either a zip code contains BP stations, in which case the average
price and average number of gallons sold for each of these BP stations is recorded (and the indicator
variableBP = 1), or a zip code contains no BP station, in which case the price and quantity at these
non-BP stations is recorded (and BP = 0). An observation is a particular petrol station. Non-BP
stations in BP zip codes are not used in the sample.
Prices and quantities are the averages either for the period January 2009 to March 2010 (before the
oil spill) in columns (1) and (2) or for April 2010 to July 2010 (during the oil spill) in columns (3) to (6)
of the table below. Prices are in US Dollars per gallon and coded as Price. Quantities are in logarithm
and coded as ln(sales). The researchers also constructed a variable called Green Index, which is
supposed to measure the environmental orientation of consumers in the zip code. TheGreen Index
is constructed by combining the share of hybrid vehicle registrations, per capita membership in the
Sierra Club, an environmental organisation, and per capita contributions to Green Party election funds
in the zip code, all measured prior to 2010. The Green index is then standardised to have mean 0
and standard deviation 1. Using either Price or ln(sales) as the dependent variable, the researchers
obtain the following results.
Jan 2009 - Mar 2010 Apr 2010 - Jul 2010
