Inflation Adjustment Factor: The inflation adjustment factor for calendar year 2002 is 2.1169.

Credit: The nonconventional source fuel credit for calendar year 2002 is $6.35 per barrel-of-oil equivalent of qualified fuels.

Reference Price: The reference price for calendar year 2002 is $22.51. Because this reference price does not exceed $23.50 multiplied by the inflation adjustment factor, the phaseout of credit provided for in section 29(b)(1) does not occur for any qualified fuels sold during calendar year 2002.
