Petroleum pricing in Canada — the Q2 2022 report
In June, Canadian crude prices reached an all-time high, having risen 36.2 cents per litre since the end of 2021. The Canadian gasoline refining margin reached an all-time high of 51.5 cents per litre in June, 22 cents per litre higher than the end of the last quarter.
This past quarter, higher gasoline pump prices led to lower North American demand as consumers sought conservation methods and averted optional trips. Despite gasoline demand trending below levels from a year ago during the second quarter, gasoline inventories have contracted as refinery production lagged demand.
So what happens next?
Looking ahead to the next quarter, crude price volatility is likely to continue as opposing factors push and pull crude prices up and down. The ongoing war in Ukraine will continue to affect crude inventories, pressuring prices higher, while an impending global recession and the continuous emergence of various COVID-19 variants threaten crude oil demand pressuring prices lower.
