Oil falls on fears of glut as OPEC+ set to boost output

Oil prices fell on Monday on oversupply worries as OPEC and its allies are set to wind back output cuts in August and a rise in worldwide COVID-19 cases points to a slower pick-up in demand.

Brent crude futures slid 27 cents, or 0.6%, to $43.25 a barrel by 0642 GMT. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were down 34 cents, or 0.8%, at $39.93.

Brent posted a fourth month of gains in July and U.S. crude posted a third as both rose from depths hit in April, when much of the world was in lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, Reuters reported.
