U.S. crude ends down on weak economic data, products stocks rise
NEW YORK Dec 5 (Reuters) - U.S. crude futures fell on Wednesday as disappointing economic data from the euro zone and the United States raised concerns about demand for oil and rising inventories pushed gasoline futures nearly 2 percent lower.
U.S. January crude fell 62 cents, or 0.70 percent, to settle at $87.88 a barrel, having traded from $87.46 to $89.05. (Reporting by Robert Gibbons; Editing by Phil Berlowitz)
