‘Blood is thicker than water’ we all have grown up hearing this phrase. But have you heard of, ‘water is pricier than oil’? No, no, we have not made this phrase up. The 2020 oil crisis has deepened and how. Hundreds of US oil companies are on the verge of being bankrupt as crude oil price slumps below negative. Yes, the cost of crude oil is in negative. But as we all have learnt over the years, people find a silver lining in the greyest of clouds and this oil crisis seems to be no different. The silver lining here is, of course, MEMES. Netizens are having a field day posting funny crude oil price memes, with the hashtag #OilCrash and it is everything. Just like availability of oil in abundance, crude oil price funny memes are also in very large quantity. Sorry, could not help writing that.

US oil prices turned negative on Monday for the time in history. With the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) induced lockdown restricting movement across the globe, the demand for oil dried up. With the current market getting oversupplied on shrinking demand, it created a situation of free fall for crude. The oil price has now reached a point that it is increasingly becoming difficult for higher-cost producers to remain in operation and are instead looking at declaring bankruptcy. One reports that many, many US shale producers are in deep trouble and with analysts expecting low oil price for the next few more months, it will result in a spate of bankruptcies in the US. 'Negative' Crude Oil Funny Memes and Jokes Take Over Twitter as Prices of US Crude Oil Dip Below Zero; Check Tweets.

Yes, with so much going on around the world, how can you expect these fellas to keep quiet. Of course, they will make noise, make memes that will make you laugh and cry at the same time.
