: Oil futures settle lower, with U.S. prices down more than 3%


Oil futures declined on Monday, with U.S. prices losing more than 3% to erase Friday’s gain and then some. Losses followed a modest reduction in the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries’ 2022 global demand forecast, as uncertainty continues to surround China’s COVID-19 policy and its outlook for energy demand.

U.S. benchmark West Texas Intermediate crude for December delivery CLZ22, -0.85% fell $3.09, or 3.5%, to settle at $85.87 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange after posting a gain of 2.9% on Friday.
