    amount

    Hi!
    What is the exact meaning of "amount" in the following sentence? I don't know weather it means quantity or price.


    British government, with assistance of representatives of the US. will agree upon the amount for which crude oil will be sold by the company to the purchasing organization for export and the refinery.

    Thanks very much
