Non-energy commodity prices fell by 3.3 percent in November—a fourth straight monthly decrease—on continued concerns about global demand, and partly dollar appreciation (up 1.3 percent against the euro). Declines were heaviest for rubber and iron ore. Oil prices rose above $100/bbl, mainly due to recovering WTI prices following announcement of plans to help alleviate the transportation bottleneck in the U.S mid-continent. U.S. natural gas and international coal prices fell on slowing demand and supply gains.
