ROB LAUGHLIN, Gerard & National Intercommodies, London (3:00 p.m. EST): Brent crude was off at $25.13, and gasoil was off at $218.50 in a carryover of Friday's selling triggered by reports OPEC overproducing more than expected. Sentiment darkened further on a report that Saudi Arabia said the U.S. could not use airports or air space even if the UN gave approval to attack on Iraq. See Brent testing $25, heading toward $24.60.
