Oil prices fall as oversupply looms amid global market woes:
Oil prices fell on Friday and were heading for a third weekly loss, as Saudi Arabia warned of oversupply amid a slump in global equities and trade that clouds the outlook for fuel demand.
Brent crude futures (LCOc1) were down 49 cents, or 0.6 percent, at $76.40 a barrel by 0649 GMT. The global benchmark is on course for a weekly loss of over 4 percent.
U.S. crude (CLc1) was down 59 cents, or 0.9 percent, at $66.74. The U.S. benchmark is set for a 3.5 percent loss this week.
“The near $10 per barrel drop in Brent crude seen over October is a spillover from the global sell-off in equities,” Fitch Solutions said in a note.
