Oil Slides as Slowdown Jitters Continue and the Greenback Reigns Supreme

First Published: 5.44 a.m. EST

WTI crude oil remains volatile today and is down 3.41% to $76.60 as of 4:13 p.m. EST, continuing a downward trend that’s been in place since hitting its $122 high in June.

The latest hike by the Federal Reserve and an ever-strengthening U.S. dollar continue to send economic ripples globally, dampening oil prices in the process as inflation and higher borrowing costs impact consumer sentiment.

U.S. natural gas is now at $6.91, up 1.26% but significantly lower from its August levels of approximately $10.
