Oil prices fell as fears over the US-China trade war returned
Oil prices opened at the beginning of the week, Monday, on the back, due to fears of escalating trade war, between the United States and China.
US President Donald Trump, who charged 25 percent on Chinese goods worth $ 50 billion, said last week he would add $ 200 billion to other Chinese goods.
Brent crude for November delivery fell 0.14 percent, or 12 cents, to $ 77.97 a barrel by 0535 GMT.
US crude for October delivery fell 0.12 percent, or 8 cents, to $ 68.69 a barrel.
Oil prices are being hit down by the return of trade tensions between the United States and China, as it will reduce demand for crude, which is the main manufacturing fuel.
