Oil prices have jumped and plummeted so quickly since the COVID-19 crisis began that analysts can hardly keep up. 

In the past two weeks, prices have dropped into negative numbers -- the lowest price in history -- as storage locations filled up. There was a brief spike in prices on Tuesday after a bomb was detonated on an oil tanker in Syria, before tumbling again thanks to forced sales of future contracts in the US, then rising again yesterday as Asian stocks entered the market. 

While no one knows what the future holds, Crikey spoke to three experts for their take on what life in the oil market will look like after COVID-19.
