Oil prices underwent a selloff on Thursday with U.S. crude falling below the $50 a barrel level for the first time in more than a year amid persistent concerns about oversupply.

New York-traded West Texas Intermediate crude futures fell 47 cents, or 0.93%, at $49.82 a barrel by 4:45 AM ET (9:45 GMT). That was its lowest level since Oct. 9, 2017.

Brent crude futures, the benchmark for oil prices outside the U.S., traded down 74 cents, or 1.25%, to $58.35, after hitting its lowest level since Oct. 24, 2017.

Prices came under renewed selling pressure after data on Wednesday showing that U.S. crude inventories increased again last week, hitting their highest levels in more than a year. In its weekly report, the Energy Information Administration said oil stockpiles increased by 3.57 million barrels to 450 million barrels.
