Oil futures decline

Oil futures declined on Wednesday with U.S. prices poised for their lowest finish in almost two months, as downbeat economic data weighed on prospects for energy demand, and domestic crude stockpiles registered a third straight weekly climb.
 
West Texas Intermediate crude for November delivery fell 96 cents to $52.66 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, poised for the lowest front-month contract settlement since August 8.
 
December Brent, the global benchmark, declined by 98 cents to $57.91 a barrel.
