Crude Oil prices declined 1.06% against the USD for the 24 hour period ending 23:00GMT, closing at 107.32. However the losses were capped on speculation that a limited military strike from the US on Syria could disrupt the oil supply prospect from the Middle East region. Oil prices also found some support from American Petroleum Institute’s data that indicated a 4.16 million barrels fall in the US inventories during the week ended 30 August 2013.
