    FXStreet (Córdoba) - Oil prices lost nearly 3% on Friday in thinned-trade post-Thanksgiving amid broad USD and as oversupply concerns continue to weigh.

    West Texas Intermediate dropped $1.27, or 3.2% to settle to $41.71 a barrel. Over the week, WTI futures were down 0.6%, posting its fourth loss in a row. Meanwhile, Brent crude, finished 1.6% lower at $45.46 a barrel.

    Global supply glut and dollar strength amid expectations continue to drive the commodity lower.
