U.S. crude settles lower as economic growth worries pressure

NEW YORK, Oct 2 (Reuters) - U.S. crude futures fell on Tuesday in choppy, light-volume, trading as concerns about slowing economic growth and curbed demand for petroleum weighed on oil prices and countered supportive concerns about the risk of supply disruptions.

U.S. November crude fell 59 cents, or 0.64 percent, to settle at $91.89 a barrel, having reached $92.94 before falling to $91.78 in post-settlement trading.
