NEW YORK (AP) The price of crude oil is below $100 a barrel after the U.S. government reported an increase in supplies.

Metals prices are broadly higher and crop prices are mixed.

Crude oil for November delivery fell $1.59, or 1.6 percent, to $99.22 a barrel in New York. That's the first close below $100 a barrel since July.

U.S. supplies of crude oil increased 4 million barrels in the week ended Oct. 11. The report was delayed five days due to the government shutdown that ended last Thursday. Analysts expected a smaller increase.
