The news comes after a dramatic decrease in demand for oil amid the coronavirus pandemic that previously resulted in the price of WTI for delivery in May falling to a negative value for the first time in history.

The price for Brent has plummeted to below $25 on the ICE stock exchange in London, according to trading data. As of 6:45 a.m. GMT, crude has lost 3.29 percent, reaching $24.73 per barrel.

In the meantime, the price of May futures for WTI on the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) has rebounded, increasing by 100.27 percent to $0.1 per barrel, with Tuesday being the last trading day for WTI May futures on NYMEX. The price of June futures for WTI increased by 2.69 percent to $20.98 per barrel.
