The US crude oil prices benchmark is down about 8% so far this week, facing pressure from concerns that aggressive monetary tightening by major central banks could tip the global economy into recession, hurting energy demand.

Still, traders remained cautious about a highly uncertain supply outlook heading into winter, with the European Union set to ban Russian crude flows from December, while OPEC is expected to keep oil markets tight.
