Abstrakt


The study is devoted to preliminary analysis of the Polish petroleum industry and the wholesale level of the fuel market in the context of strategic interactions’ research. In the paper, the structure of the Polish petroleum industry (refining sector) and the wholesale level of the market were analyzed, in order to extract every factors influencing the shape of theoretical strategic interaction model. As a result, the key characteristics of the industry, the wholesale market, the players and price creation mechanism have been isolated. Basing on that findings, the Author has pointed to essential elements of the theoretical model of strategic interactions (game model), which can be constructed as a possible model of players’ behavior.
