NEW YORK, Jan. 28 (UPI) -- Crude oil prices topped $89 per barrel Friday with traders concerned unrest in Egypt could prompt a closing of the Suez Canal.

The U.S. Commerce Department said the gross domestic product rose 3.2 percent, lower than the 3.5 percent expected, tempering gains. However, concern over a possible closure of the canal, a potential bottleneck for much of the world's oil supply, pushed crude oil prices 4.2 percent on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

After a week-long slide, crude oil prices added $3.85 to $89.49 per barrel. Home heating oil prices gained 4.29 cents to $2.698 per gallon. Reformulated blendstock gasoline prices rose 7.18 cents to $2.485 per gallon. Henry Hub natural gas prices rose 1.6 cents to $4.335 per million British thermal units.

At the pump, the national average price of unleaded gasoline dropped slightly to $3.10 per gallon Friday from Thursday's $3.101, AAA said.
