Oil Prices Down On Friday, But Were Up Over The Week

Prices slowed on Friday in the oil market, but the weekly balance sheet was positive: WTI rose another 0.67 percent in 5 sessions and Brent advanced 1.46 percent, also reaching the $50 threshold at the close on Thursday, for the first time since last March.
