Can you support this with actual data? Or with simple logic? If he said it would cost the consumer ~$1/gal more, that logically would be due to the chemical additives and any excess processing costs associated with blending it. If *those* costs increase, then sure, the price would go up proportionally. But only greed would make the spread go up just because the price of a barrel of oil goes up. And I suspect that their marketing people would see it as counter-productive to do that; if the dollar spread stays stable or goes down, it becomes more competitive with avgas purely on price, as avgas prices go up.Initial estimates are an additional ~$1.00 per gallon over 100LL based on oil being $40/barrel with the price increasing proportionally with higher oil prices.
