And, you can't do the type of mathematics that you are trying to do with retail gasoline prices. At least not with any accuracy. It's not exactly linear.
I know the numbers are not precise, that is not what I was worried about. Also, as with any retail situation there are certain expenses that exist regardless of pricing so I agree it is not linear. However it should still be in the ball park when discussing generalities I would think.
