Oil price falls below $95 a barrel

BANGKOK -- The price of oil fell below $95 a barrel today as traders awaited the latest U.S. government report on energy supplies. 

 

Benchmark oil for August delivery was down 74 cents to $94.58 per barrel at midday Bangkok time in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract rose 14 cents to end at $95.32 a barrel on Tuesday 

 

Carl Larry of Oil Outlooks and Opinions said in a commentary that he expects to see a drop in crude supplies when the U.S. Energy Department issues its weekly report on oil and gasoline supplies later in the day. The nation's supply of crude oil is near a record level, while gasoline supplies remain high because of tepid demand. 

 

"Yes, the market seems well supplied, but that's because it's well under normal demand," Larry said.
