Oil slumps as U.S. bans travel from Europe over pandemic
Oil prices sank again on Thursday along with the broader market after the United States banned travel from Europe following a World Health Organization declaration that the coronavirus outbreak is now a pandemic.Market worries were compounded by the threat of a flood of cheap supply as Saudi Arabia promised to raise oil output to a record high in its standoff with Russia.Brent crude was trading down $1.91, or 5.3%, at $33.88 by around 0339 GMT, slightly above earlier lows. Oil is down around 50% from highs reached in January.
Global shares also crumbled after U.S. President Donald Trump said the United States will suspend all travel from Europe as he unveiled measures to contain the coronavirus epidemic.The travel ban, which excludes Britain, will hit U.S. airlines “extremely hard,” their industry association said.The surprise move is likely to mean a further drop in demand for jet and other fuels in an already battered oil market though, for now, just how much is hard to quantify.
