Why are the retail pump prices for gasoline and diesel fuel in increments of 0.9 cents?
The pricing of gasoline and diesel fuel at retail service stations to 9 tenths of a cent is most likely a marketing practice. It is similar to other retail pricing of a product at $19.99 rather than $20. EIA does not have information on the origin of this practice.
