The Associated Press

Oil declined Wednesday but stayed above $102 per barrel amid unrest in eastern Ukraine and the possibility of lower U.S. production.

Benchmark U.S. crude oil for May delivery was down 44 cents to $102.12 at 0910 GMT in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract gained $2.12 to $102.56 on Tuesday.

Brent crude, used to set prices for international oil varieties, shed 26 cents to $107.37 on the ICE exchange in London.

Also this week, the U.S. Energy Department lowered its 2014 crude production forecast to 8.37 million barrels a day from 8.39 million barrels.
