Abstract

Many consumers and some people from the media contacted the Office of Free Competition, Finland during summer 1994. They all had noticed the same phenomenon; nearly all gasoline stations raised the price of gasoline simultaneously at the beginning of June. The Office of Free Competition investigated the case to determine whether horizontal price co-operation existed. This case requires basic knowledge of microeconomics. It was prepared for third year business school students. However, it contains many layers and can be analysed with basic knowledge from micro up to in-depth level.
