“During the last week, we have had fresh estimates for oil demand which now forecast the biggest decline in consumption in more than a quarter of a century.  We have had yet another increase in crude oil stocks, leaving inventories at their highest levels in 15 years, and creating the biggest surplus against the previous year since 1990.   These factors have worked together to press crude prices right back against their spine of support.”
