Oil falls as weak China data offsets US debt ceiling progress

Oil prices extended losses early on Wednesday as worries of slowing demand from top oil importer China after the release of weaker-than-expected economic data outweighed some positive progress on the U.S. debt ceiling bill, APA-Economics reports citing Reuetrs.

Brent crude futures for August delivery fell 28 cents to $73.43 a barrel by 0250 GMT, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude (WTI) slipped 26 cents to $69.20 a barrel, with earlier gains reversed after China manufacturing data was released. Both benchmarks fell by more than 4% on Tuesday.

Brent's July contract , which expires on Wednesday, and the U.S. benchmark were on track for monthly declines of more than 7% and 9%, respectively.
