Oil futures prolonged their slide today, as a higher-than-predicted uptick in domestic crude inventories -- now at their highest level since 1990 -- and the political drama in Greece weighed on the commodity. Crude for June delivery was down $1.17, or 1.2%, to close at $92.81 a barrel -- its lowest settlement since Nov 2.
Gold futures reached their lowest close since July today, as the dollar continued its recent strength on anxieties that Greece could end its tenure as a euro-zone member. June-dated gold buckled $20.50, or 1.3%, to settle at $1,536.60 an ounce.
