The price of oil declined Thursday after official figures showed U.S. crude production at a 28-year high.
Benchmark U.S. crude for June delivery was down 42 cents to $101.95 a barrel at 3:40 a.m. ET on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract rose 67 cents Wednesday to close at $102.37.
The U.S. Energy Information Administration said Wednesday that domestic crude production reached 8.428 million barrels during the week ended May 9. That was the highest level since October 1986.
The decline in oil prices comes after crude climbed above $102 a barrel amid tensions in Ukraine. An industry report also showed crude stocks fell at a key U.S. storage hub.
Brent crude was down 20 cents to $109.11 a barrel on the ICE exchange in London.
