Oil below $102 as US crude supplies seen rising


The Associated Press

The price of oil fell 19 cents to 101.56 in Asia on Wednesday as traders awaited weekly data expected to show rising U.S. crude stockpiles.

U.S. crude for May delivery closed at $101.75 Tuesday in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange, down $1.90 from its close Monday at $103.65.

Brent crude, an international benchmark for oil, eased 7 cents to $109.20 on the ICE Futures exchange in London after closing at $109.27.

Despite expectations that U.S. supplies may outpace demand, investors worry that fresh sanctions against Russia may disrupt Russian oil and gas exports.

Pro-Russian insurgents in eastern Ukraine have occupied government buildings and set up checkpoints in demand of closer ties with Russia.

Just hours after U.S. Vice President Joe Biden visited the Ukrainian capital to show support, Ukraine's acting president ordered security forces to resume operations in the country's east, raising fears that last week's international agreement on easing the crisis may be unraveling.

In other energy futures trading in New York:

— Wholesale gasoline was flat at $3.04 a gallon.

— May heating oil was almost unchanged at $2.99 a gallon.

— Natural gas for May edged 0.1 cent lower to $4.73 per thousand cubic feet.
