There are various "barrels" established by law or usage. Federal law recognizes a 31- and a 40-gallon barrel, depending on the type of liquor. In addition, the number of gallons recognized as making up a barrel differs among various States.

APPROXIMATE WEIGHT OF PETROLEUM AND PRODUCTS

[In the United States petroleum and its products are measured by bulk, not weight. Quantities are customarily reduced to the equivalent of barrels of 42 U.S. gallons (158.984 liters). In many foreign countries these commodities are measured by weight. The specific gravity of the different grades of crude petroleum and of the finished products varies materially. On the basis of approximate averages, the Department of Commerce uses the following factors for converting foreign weight statistics to gallons or to barrels of 42 gallons]
