The ministerial office pointed out that the reference oil prices have moved throughout the week in a range of 40-41 dollars per barrel, but it is not yet clear what the trend will be in the coming weeks.

“The reality is that the trend will depend on the behavior of the virus and the decisions that governments make in relation to confinement to avoid expansion in this stage of re-contamination. Many of the states of the United States are opting to backtrack on some measures they had adopted to return to normalcy, closing bars, restaurants, and museums,” the MICM indicated in its resolution.
