Oil Slips Below $104 as Supplies Set to Increase 

Oil fell below $104 per barrel on Monday as expectations of increased supply offset strong U.S. job growth. U.S. crude for August delivery was down 25 cents to $103.81 a barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange.
The contract sunk as low as $103.70 on Friday before closing at $104.06. Brent crude, a benchmark for international oils, was up 2 cents at $110.66 on the ICE exchange in London. Crude fell despite signs the U.S. economy is steadily improving, which typically would increase demand. Employment grew by an unexpectedly large 288,000 workers in June.
