NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / August 29, 2017 / U.S. markets were dragged down by energy and insurance shares Monday as Hurricane Harvey wreaked Havoc in Texas over the weekend.

The NASDAQ Composite Index gained 0.28 percent to close at 6,283.02.
"West Texas oil futures fell as the market expects that refineries will demand less oil as they take weeks, maybe longer, to come back on line," said Phil Flynn, senior market analyst at Price Futures Group, in a note. "Brent crude, on the other hand, stayed stronger as the U.S. will demand product from Europe as well as some shut down of Libyan oil production over the weekend."
