Oil producers considered cutting production to try to stem a rising global surplus

New Delhi: Oil prices fell to their lowest in more than a year on course for their biggest one-month decline since late 2014, even as oil producers considered cutting production to try to stem a rising global surplus. Oil supply, led by US producers, is growing more quickly than demand and to ward off a build-up of unused fuel such as the one that emerged in 2015, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries is expected to start trimming output after a meeting planned for December 6.

But this has done little so far to prop up prices. The value of a barrel of oil has dropped by around 20 percent so far in November, in a seven-week streak of losses.

Benchmark Brent crude oil fell $2.31 a barrel, or 3.7 percent, to $60.29, its lowest since early November 2017. By 1245 GMT, Brent was trading around $61.00, down $1.60.

Uber Gears Up To Tell Investors That Growth Will Come From Food Delivery, Self-Driving Cars And Scooters

New Delhi: Christoph Weigler looks every bit the part of a Silicon Valley start up executive sitting in his glass-walled office in Berlin with an open suit jacket, casually tieless. But the Uber general manager for Germany isn’t talking about dominance or disruption. Weigler instead prefers discussing rules and regulations: “Companies in general need to abide by them.”As for Uber’s famously brash tactics, he said, “It was very obvious that was not the way we could succeed here.”

As the ride-hailing giant prepares for an initial public offering next year, Uber is gearing up to tell investors that much of its growth will come from food delivery, self-driving cars and scooters. Uber Technologies Inc.’s core business of moving passengers in people’s carshas largely plateaued. In most major markets around the world, it has eitherwon or retreated. But thanks to a more diplomatic approach pioneered by Uber Chief Executive Officer Dara Khosrowshahi, there are a few markets that hold newly tantalizing possibilities.
