    Oil crashes, fears of 'price war' up after OPEC deal failure

    CGTN 2020-03-09

    Oil prices crashed on Monday after Saudi Arabia slashed its official selling price, adding uncertainty to a world economy that continues to struggle with COVID-19.


    Crude plummeted more than 30 percent at one point, marking the hardest drop since the Gulf War in 1991. As of 2:25 A.M. GMT, the WTI and Brent Crude are still down under 20 percent.
