Arab Today, arab today Oil prices fall after Fed lowers growth outlook

New York - AFP

Oil prices tumbled again Tuesday after the Federal Reserve said it would keep interest rates exceptionally low for another two years to help prop up slower than expected US economic growth.New York\'s main contract, West Texas Intermediate light, sweet crude for delivery in September, closed at $79.30 a barrel, down $2.01 from Monday\'s closing level. In London, Brent North Sea crude for September shed $1.17 to settle at $102.57 a barrel. Earlier, it had slid to $98.76, its lowest level since February 8. Oil prices, which had fallen more than five percent Monday after rating agency Standard & Poor\'s downgraded US credit, roiling global markets, extended their nose-dive after the Fed issued a downbeat view of the world\'s largest economy. Economic growth so far this year has been \"considerably slower\" than expected and \"downside risks to the economic outlook have increased,\" the policy-setting Federal Open Market Committee said in a statement after a one-day meeting in Washington. The FOMC kept its key interest rate unchanged near zero and said that economic conditions were likely to warrant \"exceptionally low\" rates \"at least through mid-2013.\" The statement reinforced market worries that growth is sputtering in the United States, the world\'s largest oil consumer, which could result in reduced demand. \"It\'s pretty clear they have taken a significantly more negative tone on the economy going forward, both short term and now at least medium term with the mid-2013 target period for low rates,\" said John Kilduff at Again Capital.The Fed outlook came after the US government reported two weeks ago that gross domestic product, the broad measure of economic activity, had nearly stalled in the first half of the year.The bank\'s statement feeds into \"the worries that have been seen gripping this market about what demand is going to look like until the end of the year,\" Kilduff said. Oil prices had rebounded through much of the day\'s trading before the Fed announcement. The OPEC oil cartel earlier pared its global demand forecasts, citing concerns for the economic health of developed countries. The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries -- whose 12 member nations pump about 35 percent of global oil supplies -- estimated crude oil demand of 88.14 million barrels per day (mbd) in 2011, down from a previous estimate of 88.18. For 2012, OPEC projected 89.44 mbd, down from 89.50 mbd.
