World oil prices continued to fall on Tuesday
World oil prices continued to fall on Tuesday, with the price of Brent crude sliding below 60 dollars per barrel amid healthy US energy supplies ahead of the northern hemisphere winter, analysts said.
Prices were also weighed down by a plan aimed at breaking the deadlock over Iran's nuclear programme, they added.
Brent North Sea crude for November delivery shed 78 cents to 59.67 dollars per barrel in electronic trading ? 24 percent below its record high of 78.64 dollars reached in August.
New York crude had plunged 1.88 dollars on Monday to close at 61.03.
