Oil consolidates near $97 after losses

BANGKOK (AP) — Oil dwelled near $97 a barrel Friday, consolidating after two weeks of losses sparked by high supplies and patchy global economic growth.

Benchmark U.S. crude for December delivery was up 20 cents at $97.31 a barrel at late afternoon Bangkok time in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract, which rose 25 cents to $97.11 on Thursday, is down nearly 5 percent over the past two weeks.

One factor weighing on the price was Wednesday's report from the Energy Information Administration that said U.S. oil inventories rose by 5.2 million barrels last week, a possible symptom of subdued demand and overproduction. The rise in stockpiles followed a 4 million barrel increase in the previous week.

"Demand isn't looking great and it's not anything to do with fuel efficiency in today's cars. It's the fact that there's high unemployment, weak job creation," said Carl Larry of Oil Outlooks and Opinions.

Asian stock markets were roiled Friday by doubts about the durability of recoveries in Japan and China.

Japan released inflation figures that gave a mixed signal about the effectiveness of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's economic revitalization strategy that aims to reverse two decades of stagnation and falling prices. In China, there are jitters that tighter central bank management of credit growth could crimp the recovery in the world's No. 2 economy.

Brent crude was down 17 cents at $106.82 a barrel on the ICE Futures exchange in London.

In other energy futures trading on the Nymex:

— Wholesale gasoline fell 1.9 cents to $2.553 a gallon.

— Natural gas fell 1.2 cents to $3.617 per 1,000 cubic feet.

— Heating oil shed 0.4 cent to $2.895 a gallon.
