Hi Over here petrol is selling at £4.95 per imperial gallon of 95 ron and diesel at £5.30 per imperial gallon. That is supermarket fuel. Branded petrol stations will be more. Tax makes up a whopping 72% of that !

Leaving the tax aside, in absolute dollars (rounded to the nearest penny) we have: Gas Diesel Crude oil: $0.64 $0.65 Refining: $0.26 $0.19 Dist/Market: $0.49 $1.00 Distribution and marketing is a catchall for various middlemen incurring costs and taking profits as a gallon of product moves from the refinery to the consumer, which is not taxes. Somehow it is twice as much for diesel.
