A deal between OPEC and nations including Russia to boost oil prices involves a 10 million barrels per day output cut until July

OPEC and other producers lasted until early Friday morning, when it apparently devolved into a Mexican standoff. The cartel, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia say Mexico’s refusal to agree blocked the proposed accord.
