The OPEC + oil cuts of 2020…

This was a response to Covid dating back to mid 2020 as Trump tried to raise crude prices.


OPEC said in a statement that the initial 10 million barrels per day cut would last in May and June, before tapering to 8 million barrels per day for the rest of the year. Beginning in January 2021, the cuts would decrease to 6 million barrels per day, which would continue through April 2022, according to the statement.
