Oil prices fall as traders await OPEC+ meeting

NEW YORK, Sept. 29 (Xinhua) -- Oil prices declined on Thursday as market participants awaited a key meeting by major oil producers.

The West Texas Intermediate (WTI) for November delivery decreased 92 cents, or 1.1 percent, to settle at 81.23 U.S. dollars a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Brent crude for November delivery lost 83 cents, or 0.9 percent, to settle at 88.49 dollars a barrel on the London ICE Futures Exchange.
