Abstract
Previous studies have focused on the analysis of energy consumption within a given country or a region. The paper aims to examine the short-run and/or long-run cross-regional relationships among the oil consumptions in China, Japan and India. These three countries are geographically close. I introduce the yearly time series of oil consumption for the 1965 to 2010 period. I tested for unit root, break date and Granger causality. I did not find any break dates in the data. I found that the oil use variables for these three countries had various unit root properties, which imply that they were impossibly co integrated. The pronounced differences of economy, politics, and population and energy sources across the countries may lead to no co integration. However, using the Toda-Yamamoto technique, I found that the oil consumption in either China or India Granger caused that of Japan. Oil consumption in India Granger caused that of China. Therefore, foreign oil consumption could be a predictive factor when one analyse China’s short-run oil consumption changes.
