    In a 42 gallon crude oil barrel about 19.6 gallons of gasoline are produced. This varies by the oil and the manufacturing.

    In fractional distillation, less than the 19 is obtained. But the oil companies do a process called cracking where larger molecules are broken down into gasoline sized molecules.
