Oil prices edged lower on Thursday, retreating from a four-month peak, as fears of a slowing global economy weighed on market sentiment.
U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were at $60.16 per barrel at 00:40 GMT, down 7 cents, or 0.1 percent, from their last settlement. WTI had earlier hit a high of $60.19 a barrel — the highest since Nov. 12.
International Brent crude oil futures were at $68.47 a barrel, down 3 cents from their last close. Brent touched $68.57 a barrel on Wednesday, its highest since Nov. 13.
The losses came amid worries over global economic growth after the U.S. Federal Reserve highlighted signs of a slowing economy.
