The short-run elasticity of demand for gasoline is estimated to be about 0.11, but the long-run elasticity is about 0.

The short-run elasticity of demand for gasoline is estimated to be about 0.11, but the long-run elasticity is about 0.9. Explain, based on the determinants of elasticity, why the short-run elasticity is so low (inelastic), but why elasticity is far higher (though still inelastic) in the long run.
