Oil prices slip

Oil prices slip

Oil markets fell on Thursday despite a surprise decline in U.S. inventories, but the price drops were tempered by a smaller-than-expected reduction in gasoline stocks and ongoing OPEC-led supply cuts, Caspian Energy News ( reports with reference to Reuters.

Brent crude futures were at $71.43 a barrel at 0700 GMT, down 19 cents, or 0.3 percent, from their last close and further away from Wednesday’s five-month high of $72.27 a barrel.

U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were at $63.62 per barrel, down 14 cents, or 0.2 percent.

Both contracts had traded slightly higher earlier in the day.
