NEW YORK, May 1 (UPI) -- Crude oil prices dropped close to $91 per barrel Wednesday on the New York Mercantile Exchange on concerns of slow demand.

Automatic Data Processing Inc. said 119,000 jobs were added to the economy in April, marking a steady decline in new jobs from December when 215,000 private sector jobs were created.

West Texas Intermediate crude oil gave up $2.12 to $91.01 per barrel.

Gasoline prices lost 1.22 cents to $2.7152 a gallon.

Home heating oil dropped 4.26 cents to $2.7866 a gallon.

Natural gas shed 3.2 cents to reach $4.316 per million British thermal units.

At the pump, the average price of a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline was $3.522 Wednesday, up from Tuesday's $3.508, the AAA Fuel Gauge Report said.
