X = 78. 😉 This factor last changed one year ago (April, 2018) when Southwest shifted from WGA points fares primarily at a variable 72-76 point per $1 cost (while also lowering the number of points required for Anytime and BS fares). Historically, since the introduction of the points-based system, Southwest has instituted a devaluation almost annually. While it seems we may be "due" for another adjustment, I suspect that won't happen anytime soon, due the current circumstances under which Southwest is operating.
