    Gasoline Taxes Across Canada

    How much are you paying per litre of gas? It depends on where you fill your tank. The basic price for a litre of gasoline varies from province to province due to differences in provincial gasoline tax, provincial sales tax and in some cities, transit tax.

    In 2015, taxes in Canada represented on average 38.5 cents per litre, which is approximately 35% of the pump price.
