Unprecedented in World History: Oil prices could soon turn NEGATIVE! No Storage means PAYING to Take it Away!

We are witnessing two simultaneous historic events, one is the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, but the other one is a dirty little secret that's about to surface…a Crude Secret…are you ready for this? The price of crude oil is about to go negative—below zero—meaning oil companies will have to PAY to have it hauled away!

Commenting on this unprecedented event as it unfolds is economist Jack Hanney, CEO of Patriot Gold Group. 


  1. It seems like just yesterday when oil prices were sky high and there were thousands of news reports of oil shortages, but in the sudden coronavirus era when few people are driving cars, oil is about to do the unimaginable: Going negative. Tell us about that.
  2. Goldman Sachs analysts say landlocked crude prices will be negative. 
  3. Global storage is likely to reach maximum capacity in a matter of weeks. What on earth will  oil companies do—isn't there some way of turning off the spigot of those oil wells?
  4. Without our being on a gold standard, isn't this 'free' money just watering down the current money supply?
  5. Instead of showing down oil supply to raise prices, OPEC execs in Saudi Arabia promise to increase oil output to a record high. Have they lost their ever-loving minds?
  6. What other economic 'laws of unintended consequences' do you see occurring due to drastic measures being imposed by governments on billions of people?
  7. But oil prices aren't the only thing going down in value.  The more money the Fed prints, the less the dollar is worth, right?
  8. They are talking about trillions of dollars more in stimulus, meaning printing even more money. If we cross that invisible line of too much, what might we looking at soon in the form of inflation or even hyperinflation? How much more can government water down money before it becomes worth less—or worthless?
  9. Can you give some examples of hyperinflation and what that looked like historically elsewhere?
  10. What protection do we have against inflation eating away at the money we receive from the stimulus relief?
  11. Where may we receive more information on these matters and proper investing?
