Crude oil will not stop falling.
On Friday, the price of West Texas Intermediate crude oil, the US benchmark price, fell to as low as $35.92 a barrel, the lowest price in over seven years as the commodity continues to get hammered.
Since last year the price of crude is down about 40% and since hitting a peak of around $110 in June 2014, WTI is off nearly 70%.
This latest collapse in oil prices comes on a day when stocks were getting crushed as markets continue to remain skittish ahead of an expected rate hike from the Federal Reserve next Wednesday.
