Losses in benchmark Brent and U.S. crude oil briefly accelerated in Thursday's late trade as the dollar pared its earlier weakness, weighing on commodities priced in the currency.
Brent's front-month was down 70 cents, or 1.2 percent, at $56.84 at 2:10 p.m. EDT (1410 GMT), after rising more than $1 earlier. Front-month U.S. crude was down $1.15 cents, or 2.4 percent, to $47.02 a barrel.
The dollar fell after Germany's Finance Minister said attempts to generate more growth via a central bank liquidity would have limited success.
