What is driving up the price of a liter of gasoline?

The oil market does not explain everything: the price of a liter of gasoline in Quebec is influenced by numerous taxes and margins ultimately giving the impression of undergoing illogical, even arbitrary increases..

This was the case on February 13, with a notable jump of 5 to 10 cents (ȼ) depending on the region, while the price of a barrel of oil was falling. For the Energy Authority, the key factor in this daily instability remains the margin that service stations allow themselves.
