Does the IMF database have historic data for nominal and real energy prices since 1970?

We provide real oil prices from 1980 in Figure 1.17 in the April 2008 WEO publication. Please click here for the data behind the chart in CSV format. You may want to send an e-mail to the IMF Commodities Unit at if they can provide you with the data prior to 1980.

For information on deflators used to express nominal commodity prices in real terms, please see the following thread in the WEO Data Forum
