Oil prices fell again Thursday, with New York prices down a third straight day, amid rising stockpiles in the United States and a tepid picture for economic growth.
The New York benchmark, West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude for December delivery, lost 39 cents to finish at $96.38 a barrel.
In London, Brent crude for December gave up $1.02 to $108.84 a barrel.
The steady accumulation of commercial stockpiles of crude in the United States since early October has taken WTI prices lower. On Wednesday the weekly report showed another rise, nearly double analyst forecasts.
