Oil falls after OPEC's Trump call to curb prices
Oil prices fell on Tuesday to continue losses after falling 3 percent in the previous session, following US President Donald Trump's call for OPEC to curb its efforts to raise prices.
Brent crude was at $ 64.66 a barrel, down 10 cents, or 0.2 percent, from the last close. Brent, which fell 3.5 percent on Monday, touched its lowest level since February 14 on Tuesday at $ 64.32 a barrel.
US crude <LCOc1> was $ 55.21 a barrel, down 27 cents, or 0.5 percent.
Analysts say the United States, the world's biggest oil consumer, wants to stave off a recent rally in prices, backed by a reduction in two major producers. Brent prices rose 8.1 percent between Feb. 8 and Feb. 22.
Trump on Monday expressed concern over oil prices and reiterated his previous calls for the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) to maintain price stability.
