Crude oil takes 3% fall after Fed increases interest rates

Oil Slides 24% in Worst Year Since 1991 | The Motley Fool

 

After starting out the week in a weak posture, crude oil prices dropped more than 2% Wednesday following the move by the Federal Reserve to hike interest rates by three-quarters of a percentage point.

West Texas Intermediate crude actually fell 3.04% or $3.62 to settle at $115.31 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. At one point, WTI reached a low for the day of $114.60 a barrel.

Global benchmark Brent crude settled down 2.2% or $2.70 at $118.51 a barrel on ICE Futures Europe. It reached a low of $117.75 in earlier trading.

The price fall came after the Energy Information Administration reported U.S. crude production edged up 100,000 a day last week to reach 12 million barrels a day, the highest production level since April 2020.

The fall in crude oil prices left Oklahoma energy stocks struggling for the day with many recording losses.

Continental Resources fell more than 3.5% while Laredo Petroleum dropped nearly 6%.
