On Monday, the euro slid against the dollar and other major currencies. A stronger dollar pushes down oil prices, making crude more expensive for traders using other currencies. The euro was down to $1.2929 from $1.3080 late Friday in New York.
Brent crude, used to price many kinds of oil imported by U.S. refineries, was down $1.56 to $108.26 per barrel on the ICE Futures exchange in London.
In other energy futures trading on the Nymex:
— Wholesale gasoline lost 4.65 cents to $3.1038 a gallon.
— Heating oil fell 3.29 cents to $3.9977 a gallon.
— Natural gas added 6.4 cents to $3.936 per 1,000 cubic feet.
