A Summer Few May Want to Remember
The summer of 2020 has been memorable, but not in a good way. Instead of family trips and barbecues with friends, most people will probably associate it with the coronavirus pandemic.
The disease first raised its ugly head in the United States back in January, and has impacted most aspects of daily life, as well as the base oils industry.
Positive signs in late May related to a leveling off of coronavirus cases led to a reopening of businesses, following government mandated lockdowns. But by late June, many states had reversed these openings due to new infection spikes, and the country registered growing unemployment figures.
