Inelastic Demand

A situation in which the demand for a product does not increase or decrease correspondingly with a fall or rise in its price. From the supplier’s viewpoint, this is highly desirable situation because price and total revenue are directly related; an increase in price increases total revenue despite a fall in the quantity demanded.  Example of inelastic demand are gasoline, petrol, diesel etc.
