Why is gas cheaper in the United States, compared to Canada?

On average, the nation-wide Canadian gas price is higher than in the Unites States. Additionally, the gas prices vary notably between provinces and states, and sometimes between adjacent cities (e.g. municipal fuel tax). And the reason for this is simple - taxes. It is under each province's and state's jurisdiction to set their own tax on fuel, therefore the different prices. Once you remove this factor, the prices seem to be very comparable between the United States and Canada
