At a price of $1,000 buyers would be willing to buy 300,000 autos. But sellers would bring only 100,000 to market. As a result, a shortage would exist at the price. Buyers now would begin to offer higher prices for the available supply. The increase in price in the market would induce sellers to bring more autos on the market. It is only at a price of $1,500 that buyers and sellers achieve equilibrium and there would be no tendency for further movement in either quantity or price.
