Abstract
In this study the authors analyze three short-term and eight intermediate-term options to limit the use of leaded gasoline in cars equipped with catalytic converters. The short-term options analyzed are (1) mandated price differential between leaded and unleaded gasoline, (2) temporary suspension of ban on MMT, and (3) increased lead use in leaded gasoline. The intermediate-term options analyzed are (1) delay in introducing the three-way catalytic converter, (2) tax-subsidy schemes, (3) closing down self-service stations, (4) federal law against misfueling, (5) inspection-down self-service stations, (6) public relations program, (7) gasoline rationing, and (8) use of additives and blending materials to increase supply of unleaded gasoline.
