An explanation, please?

Our various competition and free market watchdogs tell us that there is no collusion amongst oil companies to set the price of gas at the pump.  So, pray tell, how can it be that, last night, the price was $1.23.4 a litre at 8 P.M. everywhere, regardless of the banner carried by the outlet, and this morning at 5 A.M. it was $1.33.9 everywhere.
Who gave the signal and how while we innocent lambs were sleeping?  Do they all have the same supplier or are they a one and only company operating under several names?
A sensible answer anyone?
