Benchmark U.S. crude-oil futures gave back some gains from their seven-day climb during Asian trading hours Friday, as a rising dollar helped weigh on the oil market.

Crude for August delivery traded 0.7% lower at $92.06 a barrel, down 60 cents from its $92.66 settlement on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

The loss came as the U.S. dollar edged higher, with the dollar index DXY rising to 82.972 from 82.926 late Thursday in North America. Gains for the dollar tend to depress the price of dollar-denominated commodities, such as oil.

Nymex crude had rallied $2.79, or 3.1%, in Thursday trade, boosted by geopolitical concerns after Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Iran was responsible for a recent deadly terror attack aimed at Israeli tourists in Bulgaria and said Israel ...

It is amazing how as soon as the price of oil goes up a few dollars a barrel prices at the pump immediately go up by leaps and bounds, but when the oil price comes down a few dollars just as quickly the price at the pump still lingers on at high prices.

Traders need to be banned from even looking at oil futures. We need to get back to the laws of supply and demand controlling oil prices.

In a real market these forces would work, but in this colluded, manipulated thing called wall street, it doesn't matter what the truth and facts are!

Crude is now at $91.00
Wholesale gas is at $2.90 (you can expect $3.40 or more at the pump)

Will the pump prices drop today at the pump? When the futures go up the pump prices increase almost immediately, why don't they drop the same way?

up, down, all around; will it ever stabilize again or is this new Global Market just too big too handle ? Maybe isolationism wasn't so bad after all. We were prosperous during those times w/o all these global trade agreements. Seems Global Trading cost us jobs and tanked our economy ;)

Good direction but the speculators will look for other reason to raise them again. Criminals.

Fundamentally, the global economy is a train wreck. Politically it is worse. We are in for some extremely painful times.

I'm glad the US dollar is trading higher overseas, but it sucks that it impacts the price of oil futures.

Sure, but the prices already spiked up a bit. How long until they trickle back down.

Such a relief that prices are "down" to $92.06. This will really help the economy, won't it?

Whatever. No valid reason for the rise of the dollar. Another round of quantitative easing will will further sink the dollar like a rock (and prices sky rocket as the result).

The article continues:

would respond with force. The jump marked crude futures’ seventh straight higher settlement.

But those concerns appeared to ease, with Citi Futures analysts saying uncertainty over oil’s future direction has grown.

“We’d suggest taking at least partial profits on any long positions and turn cautious on any new positions, as the next $5 swing could be in either direction,” they said.

The oil-futures market appears to have already priced in stronger seasonal demand, less output from the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and more from non-OPEC countries, as well as a roughly 1% weakening in global demand, Citi Futures said.

However, a QE3 from the U.S. Federal Reserve and military action against Iran weren’t reflected in the current price, they said.
