Crude oil just broke $70 for the first time since June 2010.

West Texas Intermediate crude futures are below $70 after Thursday's OPEC meeting resulted in the oil cartel announcing that it will not cut production.

On Thursday, WTI futures were down as low as $68.90, a more than 6% decline in the last 24 hours following the news.

Brent crude oil futures, considered the global benchmark, were also down more than 5% on Thursday to below $73 a barrel.

And from the folks at Bespoke Investment Group, here's some context on just how huge the recent decline in WTI prices has been.
