Oil prices drop below $100 a barrel, look for gas prices to continue to drop

Oil prices drop below $100 a barrel, look for gas prices to continue to drop

Tampa, FL -- Oil prices dropped below $100 to settle Friday at $99.29 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange—93 cents less than last week, according to a AAA report.

Prices fell after Saudi Arabia announced it will increase production quotas next month by 10 million barrels a day.

The decision was partly based on concern the high oil and gas prices are slowing the worldwide economic recovery. The increase is said to ease supply concerns and help make up for the loss of Libyan oil exports. The U.S. dollar was given a boost after the value of the euro fell, which could push oil prices lower this week.
