In this paper we examine whether an increase in gasoline prices due to change in the price of gasoline in stock proceeds by the manufacturer and distributor in Slovakia as well as in the case of a fall in fuel prices. For the analysis of this fact, we use an irreversible model with correction term, in which the explanatory variable is divided into two variables, the positive and the negative differences implying a price increase and a price decrease. The test of compliance of the parameters for these variables verifies the symmetry of the pricing.
