Crude oil prices dipped slightly in early Asia on Tuesday with the focus on Iraq where attempts to find a political solution are in progress, though skepticism is deep that the country cannot avoid falling further further into civil and sectarian strife. The market is also awaiting data from industry body the American Petroleum Institue later in the day on U.S. crude stocks, which it said dipped last week by 5.7 million barrels. On the New York Mercantile Exchange, West Texas Intermediate crude crude oil for delivery in August traded at $106.03 a barrel, down 0.05%, after hitting an overnight session low of $105.93 a barrel and a high of $107.37 a barrel.

Brent oil on the ICE futures exchange fell 0.6% to $114.12 a barrel.

Natural gas futures fell on Monday after updated weather-forecasting models called for a break in a U.S. heat wave, which should curb demand for air conditioning. On the New York Mercantile Exchange, natural gas futures for delivery in August traded at $4.477 per million British thermal units during U.S. trading, down 1.66%. The commodity hit a session high of $4.592 and a low of $4.475. The August contract settled down 1.11% on Friday to end at $4.552 per million British thermal units.
