Oil prices steady after Brussels attacks


Oil prices were barely changed yesterday with markets showing little impact from the bombing attacks in Brussels that killed around 35 people.

US benchmark West Texas Intermediate for delivery in May was down seven cents at 41.45 dollars a barrel.

Brent North Sea crude for May delivery added 25 cents to 41.79 doillars a barrel.

Analysts said the tendency of such attacks to dampen economic activity could put some downward pressure on crude prices.
