How crude-oil prices influence gasoline prices

Green Car Congress

Gasoline is one of the products refined from crude oil. Thus, the price of crude oil should have a strong influence on the price of gasoline. However, the retail price of gasoline includes other costs as well. The Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates that in the United States from 2008 to 2017, crude oil represented only 61% of the retail price of gasoline. Gasoline prices are also influenced by gasoline demand relative to gasoline supply.
