Oil prices fell again on Monday, 4 May, following a drop in demand, provoked by US-China trade tensions that could impede economic recovery, even as Covid-19 pandemic eases, Reuters reports.
US West Texas Intermediate crude CLc1 futures, which fell to $18.10 a barrel earlier this year, were 5.1% lower, having fallen to $18.77 at 06.58 GMT on Monday, after benchmark contracts rose 17% last week, according to Reuters.
The Brent crude LCOc1 futures were 0.4% down at $26.34, after reaching an earlier low of $25.50.
