Crude prices stand still in Asia as markets look to producers' meeting

On Friday, crude prices settled down during Asia trade having hit month-long peaks overnight and ahead of a gathering of the crude producers on Monday.

September delivery West Texas Intermediate futures were intact, losing no more 0.02% and keeping to $46.91. As for September delivery Brent crude futures, they also dipped just 0.02% being worth $49.29.

On Thursday, crude prices soared after American crude inventories dived 4.73 million barrels by July 14, as the EIA posted. As for gasoline inventories, they shrank by 4.4 million barrels.

Thursday’s crude soar, which took the commodity’s prices to peaks not observed since June 7, was also driven by hopes that crude producers might reduce supplies. OPEC as well as non-OPEC producers are expected to meet in Russia on Monday and traders are waiting for any clues that Saudi Arabia, the leading producer of crude, might cut its output.
