Oil slips on weak demand outlook

0 132

On Thursday, oil prices fell as rising coronavirus cases dampened the demand outlook, with further price pressure from a rise in OPEC output last month, though losses were capped by renewed hopes for U.S. fiscal stimulus.

Brent crude futures fell 17, or 0.4%, to $42.13 a barrel by 0818 GMT and U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were down 22 cents, or 0.6%, at $40.
