LONDON May 12 (Reuters) - European shares equity futures edged lower on Thursday, with a pullback in oil prices and losses on Asian and U.S. equity indexes potentially impacting markets.
Futures on the Euro STOXX 50, Germany's DAX, France's CAC and Britain's FTSE were all down by 0.1-0.3 percent.
Asian shares fell on Thursday following a dismal day on Wall Street, while the dollar took a breather from this week's rebound and crude oil gave back some of its recent gains.
Oil prices fell on Thursday, dragged down by the gradual return of Canadian oil sands output, reversing a sharp rise the previous day when the U.S. government detailed an unexpected fall in crude inventories.
The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index closed down 0.5 percent on Wednesday.
