Oil prices fall from five-month highs

Oil prices fell on Tuesday, slipping from five-month highs as Russian comments indicating a possible easing from its production-cutting deal with OPEC overshadowed the prospect that violence in Libya could further tighten global markets.
Brent fell 32 cents to $70.78 a barrel after hitting $71.34, its highest since November.
U.S. crude was down 37 cents to $64.03 a barrel after also reaching a five-month high of $64.79.
