I just did my own calculation and there are 158.987 Litres in a barrel of oil (@$ 62.25)coming to a cost of $ 0.3915 per Litre.

Adding the cost of refining of $ 0.23 a Litre brings it to a total of $ 0.621 per litre.

Leaving all other taxes at their stated rate (unadjusted) a litre of gasoline would cost $0.782. Include 6% GST and it comes to $ 0.829 per litre, everything included, except of course for the massive profits recently experienced by oil companies.

If in the Greater Vancouver Regional district your paying an Avg of $ 1.25 - 1.30 where do you account for the $ 0.42 discrepancy?

Just curious
