Long-run relations and short-run dynamics among coal, natural gas and oil prices
Abstract:We examine the long-run relations and short-run dynamics among the three primary energy prices-coal, natural gas and crude oil-using the annual and monthly US data for the post-1970 period. The results are consistent with the view that oil prices are determined globally; natural gas prices are determined regionally and coal prices are set by long-term contracts.
