NEW YORK, Oct. 24 (UPI) -- Crude oil prices held close to $97 per barrel Thursday morning in New York.

Home heating oil added 0.07 cents to $2.924 per gallon. Natural gas was off 3 cents to $3.59 per million British thermal units.

At the pump, the national average price of unleaded gasoline dropped to $3.329 per gallon from Wednesday's $3.339, AAA's Daily Fuel Gauge Report said.
