Seems like you could maybe make the crude oil futures posted, just add two weeks to them, so they could match the price of gas ! Just a thought.

GB doesn't track or show crude oil futures prices, but the spot price. If they did GB would need to buy that data from one of the market data providers, and I'm not sure there would be much point in doing so since that info is readily available from other sources.

If one adds "two weeks to them" or not, the price of crude oil, either spot (now) or in the future never matches the price of gas. In fact the crude oil and gasoline price trends seldom seem to move in the same direction together.

If you want to see what the "now" spot price of crude oil was for anytime in the last 12 months, you can look at the GB Crude Oil Price Chart.
