LONDON (CNI)--Crude oil price futures fell by around $4 a barrel on Thursday following the series of bomb blasts which hit London's public transport system.
August Brent fell by $4.18 to $55.67/bbl and US light crude was down $3.90 at $57.38/bbl by midday on the International Petroleum Exchange (IPE).
But petrochemicals traders said it was too early to detect any major impact on chemicals prices.
There was no reported change in aromatics prices, although offers were slightly higher, according to the global price reporting and market intelligence service ICIS-LOR, a sister company of CNI. Buyers were reported to be holding back as crude fell.
