NEW YORK, May 15 (UPI) -- Crude oil prices slipped to $93 per barrel in New York Wednesday morning as traders anticipate a supply report that will show the market amply supplied.

Gasoline prices lost 0.13 cents to $2.8363 a gallon. Home heating oil dropped 1.9 cents to $2.854 a gallon. Natural gas added 0.7 cents to reach $4.031 per million British thermal units.
