Crude Oil declined for another day after an industry report showed U.S. crude inventories rose and the Conference Board said confidence among the nation's consumers fell, signaling growth and energy demand may falter. Rising oil production capacity in the Gulf of Mexico after Tropical Storm Bonnie fizzled over the weekend without damaging infrastructure also weighed on Oil prices, analysts said. Oil prices dropped the most in more than 3 weeks Tuesday as the U.S confidence index declined to the lowest level in 5 months. Traders mentioned that there was a sell-off in the crude market because of a fall in U.S. consumer confidence and the sentiment is still weak.
