"(Bloomberg) - Oil was on track to post its biggest weekly drop since August as Europe’s worsening Covid-19 crisis renewed the prospect of lockdowns just as key consuming nations look to add emergency supply to the market. The January futures contract in New York tumbled as much as 4.2% on Friday. Brent fell as much as 3.9%. The wave of infections in Europe is growing, once again raising the prospect of restrictions on mobility and a hit to oil demand. Austria imposed a lockdown while Germany introduced some restrictions. Both benchmarks are also set to decline for the fourth straight week."
