How households adapt to changed costs for ca ownership and (English)
The best and most detailed knowledge of car use in Sweden and how car use is changing comes from travel surveys. There are also many studies of how the number of car journeys and kilometres driven is affected by petrol price changes and other cost increases. The most important cost items in terms of car use are petrol, purchase of the vehicle and maintenance. Car ownership is widespread and relatively sensitive to purchasing costs and income changes. On the other hand, car use is not sensitive to petrol price increases. The number of car journeys and car kilometres is not greatly affected by petrol price increases. An explanation for that is that the average household expenditure for petrol accounts for a relatively small proportion of total household expenses, in average between three and seven per cent. Another conclusion is that we do not know much about how households adapt to increased costs.
