Exchange with traders adjusting positions due to high domestic supplies.
The U.S. Energy Information Administration reported Wednesday crude oil supplies are at the highest level since July 1990. With winter weather waning, the high supplies have put pressure on prices.

Gasoline prices shed 1.73 cents to reach $2.882 a gallon.
