The price of crude oil wound up little changed Tuesday as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing dampened optimism about an increase in new home sales in the U.S. last month.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Metals futures and agricultural commodities are ending broadly lower.

The price of crude oil wound up little changed Tuesday as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing dampened optimism about an increase in new home sales in the U.S. last month.

Oil dropped briefly in early afternoon trading after The Associated Press' Twitter account was hacked and a fake tweet about an attack on the White House was posted. There was no attack and the president was fine.

Crude oil ended down a penny at $89.18 a barrel in New York.

Gold futures lost $12.40 to $1,408.80 an ounce. Other metals prices also fell.

Wheat, corn, and soybean futures were lower.
