Brent crude settles lower in thin trading ahead of holiday
NEW YORK Dec 24 (Reuters) - Brent crude futures edged lower on Monday in an abbreviated session before the Christmas holiday, with thin trading volume the main feature as oil prices felt pressure as U.S. budget talks stayed deadlocked.
Brent February crude fell 17 cents, or 0.16 percent, to settle at $108.80 a barrel, having traded from $108.13 to $109.22. (Reporting by Robert Gibbons; Editing by Jeffrey Benkoe)
