It was an ugly day in the oil market -- the ugliest since 1991.

Oil prices suffered an historic collapse Monday after Saudi Arabia shocked the market

by launching a price war against onetime ally Russia.

US oil prices crashed as much as 34% to a four-year low of $27.34 a barrel as traders brace for Saudi Arabia

to flood the market with crude in a bid to recapture market share.

Crude settled with a staggering loss of nearly 26% to settle at $31.13 a barrel.

Brent crude, the global benchmark, plunged 24% to close at $33.36 a barrel.

Both oil contracts fell to four-year lows.

Travel stocks crash. The whole market down after the Feds cut interest rates. Dumb move by the Feds. You can't stimulate demand when there are no goods to fulfil demand. Just look at the panic buying.

Dow and US stocks hit the hardest

and pledged that no French company would be allowed to collapse.
