Crude Oil Prices End the Week Lower

Eliecer Palacios

Oil prices declined this past week, with Brent crude 0.3% lower and West Texas Intermediate crude down by nearly 3%. The decline came amid more questions and outrage regarding the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Saudi Arabia announced late Friday that the dissident Saudi journalist was dead and that 18 Saudis have been arrested, according to the New York Times.
