Gasoline is a blend of refined crude oil products.  It is a complex mixture contain hundreds of different compounds by the time there is a finished product.  Gasoline right from the refinery would not be very good with such a low octane level of about 70%.  In order to increase the octane level, more refining and additives have to be added.
