In the Chinese gasoline market, the monthly average spot prices saw a rise of about 4% in Q3 as the prices shifted from 1191 USD/MT in July’23 to about 1245 USD/MT in September’23. However, following a reverse trajectory in Q4, the gasoline monthly average prices dipped from 1245 in September’23 to about 1169 USD/MT in December of 2023.


Fluctuations in the Asian market also influenced the behavior of the European gasoline markets during the second half of 2023. After the Russian oil exports at lower prices dominated the major buyer markets, OPEC+ decided to hold up stocks for some time to regulate the global oil markets on its terms. This led to a global supply shortage in the third quarter and elevated gasoline prices during this time. However, as the oil supplies became unrestricted again and the demands started dipping the gasoline price too started falling down in the last quarter of the year.

North America

The North American gasoline market behaved no differently from its Asian and European counterparts. The prices started on a firm note at the beginning of Q3’23. Since the American industries finally started behaving normally after the long economic turmoil of the past year, the demands were readily available; this kept pushing the prices upward. However, the fourth quarter saw swift declinations owed to the downfall in crude oil prices during this quarter. Overall, mixed price sentiments were witnessed.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the Gasoline price trends are likely to continue to fluctuate as per the current global market trends and economy.

Gasoline Price Trend for the First Half of 2023


A fluctuating price trend was observed for gasoline during the first half of the year 2023 in the Asian market. Fluctuations were attributed to the demand patterns from the fuel, diesel, and energy sectors because the upstream costs were relatively stable as the Russian oil supplies were still available to both India and China.

In the Chinese domestic market, gasoline spot prices averaged at around 1237 USD/MT (Spot FD) in the first quarter and at around 1221 USD/MT (Spot FD) during the second. After economic havoc in 2022 owing to the Covid-19 lockdown and various geopolitical tensions, the gasoline market stabilized a little during the discussed period.


The European gasoline market mimicked the Asian market trends as the prices exhibited stability here. The supply chains were restored, and alternate trade routes were also established; because the war between Russia and Ukraine seemed unending, trade normalization practices were promoted. Gasoline prices started declining eventually and fluctuated within a short range for the period under discussion. Market sentiments were supportive as the supply–demand dynamics were also stable.

North America

The American gasoline market behaved no differently than the global market in the first two quarters of 2023. As the supplies were uninterrupted, the prices declined. However, some reverse fluctuations were observed at the quarter shift because of the hike in inflation caused by the collapse of two major US banks, but general trends were still stable for gasoline.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, Gasoline price trends will rise in the upcoming months as the winter season will witness inclined demands from the fuel and energy sectors.

Gasoline Price Trend for the Second Half of 2022


After rising exponentially in the first half of 2022, the prices remained firm in the second half. There were barely any fluctuations in the third quarter; however, gasoline prices slid consistently throughout the final quarter. The manufacturing industries were still struggling in China after the lockdown and the Christmas holiday season further depleted the demands. Regular incoming of cheap Russian crude oil also pulled the gasoline price trends down. Overall, mixed market sentiments were observed.


Inflation hit the European markets hardest during the H1’22 because of the Russia- Ukraine conflict. All the supply chains were disrupted, and the oil prices skyrocketed. But the second half witnessed a little fallback in gasoline prices as the crude oil also subsided. European industries had already downsized or suspended operations for cost maintenance; thus market had very limited queries for gasoline. So, the prices saw fluctuations mostly tilted downwards in a narrow range.

North America

Following the global trends, gasoline prices plummeted in the American market as well. The change occurred primarily after the US Government released 30 million barrels of its strategic oil reserves in the previous quarter after the gasoline prices had shot up because of the Russian war. So, some normalization was observed in the said time period as prices fluctuated towards the lower side.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, further normalization is expected in the Gasoline price trends in the upcoming months as the supply chains and trade routes are also being restored consistently.

Gasoline Price Trend For the Second Quarter of 2022


Global uncertainty due to the economic backlash caused by the Russia-Ukraine war led to an explosive rise in worldwide gasoline prices. The renewed production in China, post the upliftment of pandemic restrictions, has further caused the prices to inflate. In June 2022, the price in China registered a 27.2% Y-O-Y increase.

Lately, China has decided to hike the market price of gasoline in line with the renewed production. They averaged 8.83-9.90 RMB/Litre in the Chinese domestic market.

To stabilize the domestic market amid rising fuel prices, the Indian Finance Minister on May 2022 announced an 8-rupee reduction in the central tax levied by the central government. Thus, the petrol prices remained stable towards the end of the said quarter. The price of petrol went from 1.25 USD/Litre in May 2022 to 1.23 USD/Litre in June 2022 in the Indian domestic market.


The European decision to cut the Russian oil imports by 90% by the end of the current year and the effect of this embargo on Russian production caused fuel prices to flare up. However, towards the end of this quarter, a slight relief was seen in prices due to the arrival of substitute gasoline imports from Africa and South America.

Also, with the arrival of Russian flows via Turkey, the price of gasoline fell further. The prices in Germany decreased to 1.99 USD/Litre in June 2022 from 2.36 USD/Litre in May 2022.

North America

Due to the high energy demands from the domestic market, the US refineries are running at the highest capacities recording a 5-year high. The upstream industries struggling to meet the needs caused the prices to inflate in the market. The prices went from 1.08 USD/Litre in April 2022 to 1.30 USD/Litre in June 2022.
