It's also going to depend on what type of rue you make.
There is white Roux"blond", the basic butter flour mix.
"Medium Roux", which is cooked to a peanut butter color.
"Dark Roux" "Brick" which is cooked very a burned toast.

The darker the Roux...the less thickening power it has. blond or medium is what most people use.

I tend to go for the Medium color for traditional gumbos.
