Greed is all i can think of. The price of race fuels is the #1 reason I built my engine for pump gas. I can barley afford to race as is. After entry, possible buy backs, gas for the truck, car and eats I'm broke usually.

Economy of scale. Not as many buyers for the high end fuels so the price is higher.

Don't know if there is more refining required as compared to 92 premium.

Of course I'm sure there is a comfortable profit margin included.
