Crude oil prices wavered near $92 per barrel Tuesday on the New York Mercantile Exchange with gains held in check by a recovery that looks tentative. The long rally in equities that peaked on the last trading day of 2013 has turned around.

NYMEX light, sweet crude oil added 36 cents to hit $92.16 per barrel. Reformulated blendstock gasoline prices shed 4.21 cents to $2.627 a gallon. Home heating oil gave up 0.39 cents to $2.9368 a gallon. Natural gas added 5 cents to hit $4.32 per million British thermal units.
