Crude oil prices in the global market remained weak on Thursday due to concerns over higher than
expected crude oil inventories and fears that US Central Bank may roll back its monetary stimulus later
this year on improving conditions of the United States. However, the statement from Yellen may have
limited further weakness in the commodity prices. Janet Yellen, nominee to lead the US Fed, said on
