Posted on: Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015

Census 2014 Kent Group LtdThe 2014 National Retail Petroleum Site Census, researched and published by Kent Group Ltd., is a comprehensive enumeration of the petroleum retail outlet population in Canada. This, our eighth survey of Canada’s retail petroleum infrastructure, is a unique study: there is no other single industry or governmental source of such information. We are pleased to announce that the 2014 National Retail Petroleum Site Census is now available for purchase on the Kent Group Ltd. Website using the following link:


As of December 31, 2014 there were 11,811 retail gasoline stations operating in Canada, or 3.3 outlets for every 10,000 persons. The per capita number of outlets varies significantly from one province to another; and this has a strong relationship to “throughput efficiency” by province, which in turn has significant implications with the level of retail markup in each province’s markets.

Markets with poor (low) throughput efficiencies tend to have higher retail gasoline prices (after tax differences are factored out) than those with high throughput efficiencies.
