As US oil companies bought up 20 shiploads of European petrol yesterday, the wholesale price of petrol on the Rotterdam spot market soared to a record of $855 a tonne (more than $100 a barrel), up more than 20% in two days and something experts said would feed through to the forecourt within days.

That's for processed gasoline. Gasoline usually costs about $0.60 more per gallon, and there are 55 gallons in a barrel, which equals an extra $33. With oil at around $70 per barrel, gasoline will of course be over $100.
