Crude Slips Off Highs




SINGAPORE -- Crude was lower in Asia on Tuesday, slipping with heating-oil prices as the U.S. cold weather abated.


March New York Mercantile Exchange crude futures were last traded at $27.48 per barrel, down 35 cents from New York. The contract fell 37 cents in New York.


After jumping to nine-year highs of $29.95 per barrel last week, crude has fallen this week in sympathy with a weaker heating oil market after milder weather in the northeastern United States, the world's biggest heating-oil market.
