I AM WRITING YOU TO COMPLAIN ABOUT THE GAS PRICES ,, I COME FROM A COMMUNITY THAT RELIES ON TOURISM AND THIS AREA SUFFERS WHEN YOUR PRICES GO UP. I HAVE NOTICED THAT WHEN OIL PRICES GO DOWN YOUR GAS PRICES INCREASE. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHY? ,,, TO ME THERE IS NO NEED FOR THE INCREASES. 140 PER LITRE IS HIGHWAY ROBBERY AND SHOULD NOT BE TOLERATED BY ANYONE. TO ME YOUR COMPANY SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED,, IT IS PATHETIC THE WAY YOU PRICE GOUGE EVERYONE. IT YOU WISH TO HELP THE ECONOMY YOU SHOULD START GIVING THE CONSUMER A BREAK ,, I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT OUT WEST IN CANADA THEY ARE ONLY PAYING 106 A LITRE FOR GAS ,, TELL ME WHY THIS IS? ,,,WHY DOES ONTARIO HAVE TO PAY SO MUCH MORE A LITRE FOR GAS? ,,, ENOUGH OF THE GOUGING ,, CONSUMERS CAN'T TAKE IT ,, IF THE CONSUMER STOPS BUYING FUEL FOR A DAY ,, YOU WILL END UP LOSING MONEY ,, MAYBE THAT'S WHAT IT WILL TAKE ,,
START USING YOUR HEADS ,, LIGHTEN UP ON THE FUEL PRICES ALREADY ,,

Hi Tim, we have a number of resources to help better explain gas prices, and the determining factors used when setting the price. Gas prices are influenced by a number of items including local competition. There is an excellent PumpTalk video which helps explain this a bit more in detail. https://youtu.be/9vyH3z4fVzM
We also have a post on the relationship between crude oil and gas prices: https://www.pumptalk.ca/2008/07/post.html
