Crack Spread

« Back to Glossary Index

The crack spread refers to the difference between the price of crude oil and the prices of refined products. The typical spread ratio is to buy 3 crude oil contracts and sell 2 gasoline contracts plus 1 heating oil contract (3:2:1).

This price difference represents the yield of “cracking” 1 unit of crude oil.
