A general rule of thumb: A dollar increase in the West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil price per barrel will result in a 2.5–cent increase in the price of gasoline per gallon. Likewise, a dollar decrease in the WTI crude oil price per barrel will result in a 2.5–cent decrease in the price of gasoline per gallon.
