Oil slumps $10/bbl as recession fears darken demand outlook

NEW YORK (Reuters) -Oil plummeted by about $10 a barrel on Tuesday on concerns of a looming global recession curtailing demand, even with expected supply disruptions as oil and gas workers in Norway began to strike. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude fell $9.30, or 8.6%, to $99.13 a barrel from Friday’s close. “The market is getting tight, but still we’re getting creamed and the only way you can explain that away is fear of recession in every risk asset,” said Robert Yawger, director, energy futures at Mizuho, New York.
