    We study the optimal output of a competitive firm under price uncertainty. Instead of assuming a risk-averse firm, we assume that the firm is regret-averse. We find that optimal output under uncertainty would be lower than under certainty. We also prove that optimal output could increase or decrease when the regret factor varies.
