SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- Crude futures closed under $62 a barrel Tuesday as a general cloud of uncertainty in the market, concerns over a potential glut in global oil supplies and easing worries about risks to production helped sent the October contract to its lowest level of the year.

Crude for October delivery fell to a low of $61.60 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange before closing at $61.66, down $2.14, or 3.4%. The intraday low surpassed Friday's low of $62.05 to reach the contract's weakest intraday level since late December 2005. The April contract, however, traded below $60 back in late March
