Crude Oil Plunges 4.6% This Week

Crude oil futures tumbled Friday, logging the worst weeky performance in more than a month despite industry data showing a surprise drop in the U.S. rig count.

WTI light sweet crude oil fell $1.50, or 3%, to $49.29 a barrel, for a weekly loss of 4.6%.

Baker Hughes said the U.S. rig count fell last week. Analysts say the rig count will likely fall further in anticipation of another hurricane approaching the Gulf of Mexico.
