Oil prices fell on Tuesday after recent increases, with the market awaiting this week’s U.S. crude inventory report ahead of the busy July 4th holiday weekend; West Texas Intermediate crude closed 1 percent lower at $80.83 per barrel. Analysts predict a significant drop in U.S. crude inventories, supporting optimistic sentiment driven by recovering oil demand and steady crude production, amid heightened geopolitical tensions from drone attacks on Russian oil infrastructure and rising tensions in the Middle East.
