About the same time the pandemic destroyed demand, Saudi Arabia and Russia got into a price war to see who could go the lowest. Prices edged down, from a high of $63.27 per barrel (WTI) in January to $20… $19… $18. Then, on April 20, the unthinkable happened: oil futures went into a free fall, finally bouncing at negative $37 a barrel.

“A barrel of oil is cheaper than the price of beer,” declared a CNBC headline. Demand had fallen so low, companies couldn’t give oil away! Instead, producers were paying tankers high fees to simply “park” oil temporarily.
