Qu 'is gasoline at cost ?

As part of a quest for cheaper gasoline, fuel at cost can be likened to the Holy Grail. As a reminder, the cost price of gasoline is the price purchased by the distributor. In other words, it is a sales price on which the distributor makes no margin. In this case, the customer therefore buys gasoline at the same price as the distributor, who does not win, but does not lose money either.

Many stations carry out petrol operations at cost price sporadically (on weekends or during school holidays for example). However, it is not always easy to know when to take advantage of gasoline at cost price. This is why the use of the applications and sites mentioned above is particularly important.
