# How to measure expected price growth rate for oil?

How can someone measure the expected annual price growth rate for oil?

Also, where can I find past annual price growth rate for oil values?

Any help would be appreciated.

There is a futures market for crude oil: for example http://www.cmegroup.com/trading/energy/crude-oil/light-sweet-crude.html gives a price now for May 2018 of US$\$49.54$compared with a cash price now of US$\$47.82$
