West Texas Intermediate crude fell to the lowest in almost three months on concerns the U.S. government is heading for a shutdown over a budget stalemate that may reduce demand in the world’s largest oil consumer.

Futures slipped as much as 1.4 percent in New York, extending this month’s loss to 5.7 percent. The U.S. Congress has one day to end a spending gridlock that raises the risk of the first government shutdown in 17 years. Prices also fell after President Barack Obama and Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani spoke by phone on Sept. 27 about the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program and the United Nations Security Council approved a plan to eliminate Syria’s chemical weapons.

We'll see which side the public supports. That should give Congress a clear message of what to do next. DO WHAT THE PEOPLE WANT AND NOT THE POLITICIANS.

Looks like a lot of good will come from this shut down. At least the current regime has lost funding for the special interest groups for awhile.

Second article discussing similar fuel price decrease related to Wash. not pass a budget. They shouldn't call it a budget anyway, most of Washington wants unlimited spending with we the people paying the bill for the next few hundred years.

MY ignorance, somewhat understands the principles, BUT WHY do we price on "expectations" that may or may NOT be borne out; especially when the higher prices are a self fulfilling drag on our economy?

It is truly unfortunate that the members of the U.S. Congress cannot get their act together and co-operate in moving forward for the common good of the country.

Why a drop in price over the gov't shutdown? I should have thought it would have gone up for "spooking" the stock market?
