The fluctuation of oil price decides the security of energy and economics. So the crude oil price forecasting performs importantly. In the paper, we apply the improved model based on wavelet transform and radial basis function (RBF) neural network to forecast the future oil price. Wavelet transform decomposes the original price which is used as the output layer of RBF neural network and the parts of the decomposed are used as the input layer of neural network. The real data of Europe (UK) Brent blend spot price FOB (dollar per barrel) showed by Energy Information Administration (Official Energy Statistics from the U.S. Government) is used as the word crude oil price, dating from January 1997 to October 2008. Finally, the model is proved acutely and feasibly.
