What goes into the price after gasoline?
The price you pay for gasoline has four parts:
- The cost to locate and get crude oil out of the ground
- The cost to change crude oil into gasoline (refining margin)
- The cost to operate the local station (retail margin), and
- Taxes to provincial, federal, and sometimes municipal, governments
The combination of taxes and crude oil costs represent approximately 80% of the price.*
Taxes are one of the largest component of the retail price, accounting for approx. 27 – 30 cents in Manitoba, and 35-40 cents in Ontario.*

What affects the price at the pump?
Gasoline prices are affected by several factors, often simultaneously, which may make them rise or fall:
- Changes in world crude oil prices
- Availability of supply to meet demand
- Inventory levels
- Local competition among retailers
- Seasonal demand, i.e. the annual spike in demand for gasoline during the summer driving season
Why do prices vary so much locally?
The overriding factor is always the local market, and local is not always a province or city, but can also be a small as a street or group of streets.
Every gas station owner wants consumers to buy gasoline from them. They will try to attract business by lowering their prices by a small amount. The other stations watch their competitors very closely and will match the lower price almost immediately.
This can lead to price wars where prices drop by small amounts over a few days until they reach levels where suppliers are selling gasoline for less than the price that they paid for it. When this happens, one of the suppliers may decide to go back to the original price, which can often be five or ten cents per litre higher. Usually the other stations will follow soon afterward to return to a price that provides some profit. This is called a price restoration.
Some markets, where competition is fierce, have one or more price wars every week so prices appear to be constantly changing.
