How oil is bought and sold is correctly described on page 16 of the rulebook. You spend money equal to the price of oil to buy exactly 3 barrels. You may not buy more or less. Likewise, if you sell oil, you must sell exactly 3 barrels.

Unfortunately, the price of oil is not described correctly on page 12. It says that the price listed is for 1 barrel. That's not the rule- it's the price for 3 barrels.

We're very sorry we didn't catch this mistake. Hopefully the symbols make it very clear that the price is for three barrels, as described on page 16.

I think more importantly the game board spots show 3 barrels. That coupled with Page 16, and this post, should help eliminate any confusion!

So 3 shall be the sale, and the sale shall be 3. You will not buy 2 barrels unless you continue and buy a third.
4 barrels is right out.

Thanks for the quick responses for clarifications.

Everything else looks beautifully laid out.

To be honest, I didn't really notice it in the rulebook. The board made it pretty clear for me that it's exactly 3 barrels.

Does this mean that in the final round, three barrels is $5 total?
