Uncertainty pushes oil prices down to near $90

The price of oil fell 2.2 percent Friday after disappointing US corporate earnings and a drop in existing home sales sparked worries again about the global economy.

Benchmark oil fell $2.05 to finish at $90.05 per barrel in New York. Brent crude, which is used to price international varieties of oil, dropped $2.28, or 2 percent, to end at $110.14 per barrel in London.
