Oil posted its first weekly decline in two months, finishing at below $96 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, Bloomberg News reported.

Crude futures closed Friday’s trading day down 11 cents from Thursday at $95.72 a barrel — more than $2 below last Friday, Bloomberg said.

The last time oil had declined for a week was the week ended Dec. 7, according to Bloomberg Nymex figures.

Diesel and gasoline prices spiked this week, with diesel rising almost a dime and gasoline soaring 18 cents, its biggest jump in two years.

The Department of Energy will release its weekly survey of filling stations Monday afternoon in Washington.
