Earlier this year, Covid-19 made demand for oil drop as many European countries went into lockdown, causing petrol prices to hit a 10 year low in March, and causing barrels to reach negative prices in April.

While they’re not as low as in March, petrol prices in Belgium are dropping again from Thursday to their lowest point in nearly five months.
