Meanwhile, global benchmark September Brent crude , which expired at the end of the session, added 45 cents, or 0.7%, to $65.17 a barrel on ICE Futures Europe”settling roughly 2.1% lower for the month. October Brent crude, which is now the front-month contract, tacked on 42 cents, or 0.7%, to $65.05 a barrel.
