De Schryder, Selien and Peersman, Gert, The U.S. Dollar Exchange Rate and the Demand for Oil (February 27, 2013). CESifo Working Paper Series No. 4126. Available at SSRN.

  • “Using recent advances in panel data estimation techniques, we find that an appreciation of the US dollar exchange rate leads to a significant decline in oil demand for a sample of 65 oil-importing countries. The estimated effect turns out to be much larger than the impact of a shift in the global crude oil price expressed in US dollar. Furthermore, the effect of the US dollar on oil demand tends to be declining over time and, for a subsample of OECD countries, stronger for an appreciation compared to a depreciation of the US dollar.”
