Oil prices slid on Wednesday but gasoline spiked to their highest since July 2015 as flooding and storm damage in the wake of Hurricane Harvey has shut one-fifth of U.S. oil refineries, crimping demand for crude but raising fears of a fuel shortage.
U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures (CLc1) were at $46.30 per barrel at 0359 GMT (11.59 p.m. ET), down 14 cents from their last close. Brent crude futures (LCOc1) were down 20cents, at $51.80 a barrel.
