The Venezuelan oil basket dropped 0.5% by the end of this week, at USD 95.86 per barrel, the Ministry of Petroleum and Mining informed. This is the fourth consecutive week Venezuelan oil prices fall.

The average price of oil in 2012 is USD 104.24 per barrel.

The ministry explained, "Price performance of main oil baskets' was mixed this week amid geopolitical tensions in the Middle East and contradictory news on the global economy."

This week, the OPEC oil basket rebounded USD 1.04 and ended at USD 106.24 per barrel; Brent crude oil rose USD 1.65 reaching the USD 109.46 floor per barrel while the WTI suffered a USD 0.12 setback and ended at USD 85.76 per barrel.
