Analyze gasoline price hike statistics the scenario below.
In June 2008, the U.S. retail gas price jumped from \$3 to \$4 a gallon.
This is a 33% increase in price from January 2008.
During that time, the total quantity of gasoline purchased fell by 3%.
Supplies of gasoline produced also decreased from one million barrels to 800,000 barrels.
No viable substitute has been created to replace gasoline.

Is the demand for gasoline elastic, inelastic, perfectly elastic or inelastic, or unit elastic?
