Oil prices tumble as demand slackens and OPEC talks fail to decrease production

Crude oil prices declined 30% since the beginning of 2020. OPEC met this week but failed to gain commitments from oil producing nations to coordinate a cut to the number of barrels per day being produced. Russia refused to participate. Declining demand is exacerbated by a decline in industry, travel and shipping caused by the COVID-19 virus. Prices tumbled Friday to just over $40 a barrel.
