Oil futures declined on Thursday, with U.S. benchmark prices finishing at their lowest in more than a week. Risks to energy demand, the potential for a boost in Libyan production and overall strength in the U.S. dollar pushed prices sharply lower for the session. March West Texas Intermediate oil lost $1.37, or 2.5%, to settle at $52.64 a barrel, the lowest finish for a front-month contract since Jan. 28, according to FactSet data.
