Abstract

This paper deals with the issue of transparency in the pricing process for motor fuels, vis-à-vis the collusion charges between oil companies (for which no evidence is found) and the «myth» of «one» national price for motor fuels. Such an approach ignores both the competition between oil companies, and the large geographical differences. The paper concludes by identifying some structural rigidities in the motor fuel distribution, that are largely due to legislation or regulatory failures.
