Oil falls, has 1st weekly decline since mid-June

NEW YORK (AP) — The oil market cooled off this week following some lofty gains.

Oil fell 79 cents to close at $104.70 Friday in New York. For the week, the price of oil fell $3.35, or 3.1 percent, the first weekly decline since mid-June.

Drivers saw a bit of relief. The average price of gasoline fell 2 cents over the past week to $3.65 a gallon. That’s still 11 cents higher than a month ago.

China, a major energy consumer, played a big role in this week’s decline in the price of oil. Traders were concerned over the country’s decision to press ahead with painful economic restructuring and forgo another round of stimulus even though growth has slowed.

Oil is still up $11, or 12 percent, since June 21, when it fell to $93.69.

I'm sure they'll be running across the parking lots of 7-11's everywhere with their turban tails flapping behind them to post lower prices.

How long would you speculate this trend to continue? This has been a very rocky summer for gas prices.

Our gas prices have been stable for over a week. Then, the average dropped about one cent in the last couple of days. Not really noticeable.
