Crude oil futures traded in a narrow range to end slightly lower on Monday as the global demand outlook remains uncertain and Libya announced a possible output resumption.

Hence, Brent crude slipped by 22 cents, or 0.6%, to settle at $39.61 a barrel, while U.S. WTI crude futures were down 7 cents, or 0.2%, to end at $37.26 a barrel.
