Slowing global economic growth pulls down oil prices to near US$85 a barrel in Asia

Oil fell to near $85 on Thursday as signs of slowing global economic growth offset hopes that central banks will soon implement stimulus measures. Benchmark oil for August delivery dipped to US$85.1 by late afternoon in Singapore in electronic trading on the Nymex, while in London, Brent crude for August delivery dipped to US$99.4 per barrel on the ICE Futures exchange.
