What kind of crude oil is better? (more expensive)

sweet crude oil
sour crude oil
salty crude oil
bitter crude oil
Sweet crude oil contains small amounts of hydrogen sulfide (in contrast to sour crude oil). Low-­sul­fur crude oil is in high demand as it is used to produce high­-qual­i­ty gasoline without the need for ex­pen­sive pro­cess­es of removing sulfur im­pu­ri­ties. The term "sweet" orig­i­nates from the fact that a low level of sulfur provides the oil with a mildly sweet taste and pleasant smell. Nine­teenth century prospec­tors would taste and smell small quan­ti­ties of oil to de­ter­mine its quality.
