Oil prices fall to lowest level in 18 years amid coronavirus outbreak

Brent crude, the key international oil price benchmark, plunged 6% on Monday to $26.17/ barrel as countries around the world shut down swathes of their economies to halt Covid-19’s spread. Demand has fallen by more than half in the past month as people stay at home, companies cut back on production & airlines grounded. However, Saudi Arabia & Russia price war has seen oil supplies remain buoyant.

I like the low gas prices. Too bad I can't take advantage of it because I'm working from home now. At least I'm not spending that money on gas right now.

Gas prices have nothing to do with any pandemic. In fact, were the virus actually a serious threat (80% recovery rate) gas prices would soar.

National average for gasoline is currently $2.02. Oil price is down, but gas still costs 50% more than in 2002.

Yet gasoline prices are not as cheap as they should be. I understand it takes about six weeks for the oil that we import to get here and the fact that the majority of the oil we produce we explored to other countries. Still the American people are being taken for a ride for the benefit of the wealthy.
