Fuel Price Brief

 

For the first time since August 9, crude oil settled below $80 a barrel as fuel demand lags and economic concerns persist. Oil production in Libya has resumed an output quota of almost 600 million barrels a day. Libyan quotas are expected to reach one million barrels a day in the next six months. All of which drove down oil and gas prices throughout the past month. Crude oil settled Friday at $79.85 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange—$8.11 less than the week prior.
