Lichtblau, J. et al. What happened to US gasoline prices this time? Oil and Gas Journal, 10th November 2003, 101(43) p.

In the search for culprits, attention initially focused on crude prices, the key cost component in the production of gasoline.

Moreover, prices of other products, including diesel, jet fuel, and fuel oil did not show the same sharp price increases as gasoline.
