LONDON (AP) - The price of crude oil hit its lowest level in 6½ years Friday amid concerns over a slowing economy in China, a huge energy consumer, and strong global production.

laweta gostyninThe U.S. crude contract fell as low as katalog stron $41.35 a barrel, the weakest level since early 2009, when the global economy was in the throes of a massive financial crisis and recession. By late morning in Europe, the price was around $42 a barrel.

The oil contract has been declining since touching a high of $61.43 on June 10.

The main reasons are big increases in production in the U.S. and Canada, as well as expectations Iran's oil could soon return to the market. Meanwhile, China's devaluation of its currency this week highlights its concern about an economic slowdown.
