Oil Futures Fall for Third-Straight Session

Oil futures fell for a third-straight session, just ahead of tomorrow's nonfarm payrolls report. In addition, black gold continues to be weighed down by the possibility of more interest rate hikes. April-dated crude dropped 94 cents, or 1.2%, to close at $75.72 per barrel.

Gold prices, meanwhile, pared some losses stemming from the Federal Reserve's latest remarks. Specifically, April-dated gold added $16, or about 0.9%, to close at $1,834.60 per ounce.
