Stacey: In simple terms the domestic price of a good will be effected as follows by the variables that you have identified
Domestic Price of Good ----- World Price -- Will follow the movement in the world price
                                  -----  Tariffs --- In general Tariffs are put on goods to raise the price of imported goods compared to those of the domestically produced goods.
                                  -----  Supply and Demand --  The DPG will follow the normal ups and downs of increases in supply and demand.
