Oil stays above $104 on crises in Ukraine, Libya


The Associated Press

Oil stayed above $104 per barrel Wednesday as traders watched to see how conflicts in Ukraine and Libya will affect supplies.

Benchmark crude for July delivery was up 11 cents to $104.22 per barrel at 0800 GMT in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract fell 24 cents to close Tuesday at $104.11

Brent crude, a benchmark for international oils, added 29 cents to $110.31 on the ICE exchange in London.

Markets are uneasy about the conflict in Ukraine, a key conduit for Russian gas to reach Europe. Russia's acceptance of the result of Sunday's presidential election was seen as a sign of easing tensions but more fighting between government forces and pro-Russian separatists in the east made clear the situation still is uncertain.

In Libya, which has been unable to stabilize since the ouster of Moammar Gadhafi in 2011, the National Oil Corp. said crude exports stood at 160,000 barrels a day, down from 1.4 million barrels a day a year ago. Several key export facilities are controlled by militias who do not recognize the central government.

— Heating oil added 0.8 cent to $2.945 a gallon.
