I disagree.  There are plenty of other things that can be sold by the
barrel, and I doubt there are many instances of $/barrel being used
without oil being specifically referenced.

I think it's fairly clear that $ is a unit of currency, 'barrel' is a
measure of volume, and $/barrel is a measure of currency/volume in its
own right, similar to other composite measures like m.p.h.
