This report discusses empirical values of the “rebound effect� for travel in passenger vehicles in the United States. The rebound effect refers to effects on the amount of travel that arises from changes in the fuel efficiency for light-duty motor vehicles (passenger cars and light trucks), caused in turn by regulations or technological developments. We briefly discuss the literature, then summarize previous empirical estimates done at University of California at Irvine in collaboration with Kurt Van Dender and Kent Hymel. Finally we present updated empirical estimates, which take advantage of newer data through the year 2009, and derive the implications of the updated estimates for the rebound effect in the time frame 2010-2035.
