The U.S. oil benchmark fell on Wednesday to settle at its lowest in nearly two weeks. Some traders played down the likely impact of Hurricane Michael on oil and natural-gas production in the Gulf of Mexico region.
Oil prices may have also been dragged down as a risk-off sentiment fueled sharp losses in the stock market. November West Texas Intermediate oil fell by $1.79, or 2.4%, to settle at $73.17 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.
