    Times are getting tougher by the day for oil tanker owners.

    With too many vessels to haul fuel, losses for supertankers on a benchmark Middle East-to-China route deepened to $6,779 a day on Tuesday. That’s the weakest earnings since at least 2017 and effectively means vessel owners would be subsidizing the transport of oil on that route.

    Tanker rates have been hit by a host of factors.

There’s also an oversupply of ships, which has been compounded by the unwinding of volumes of crude stored at sea.
