The meaning of the following sentence get me completely confused.
Please give me the clear definition.
The wholesales price of milk is six cents a quart lower than retail.
Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.

Note it is "wholesale" price, not "wholesales."
If milk costs 50 cents a quart retail (in the supermarket), then it costs 44 cents wholesale. That is, the retailer buys it for 44 and sells it for 50 (so he can cover his overhead and make a profit).
It's a common construction. Gasoline is $4 a gallon. I was driving 70 miles an hour.
