TOKYO: Oil rose on Monday amid hopes that fuel demand is picking up in the United States as the summer driving season approaches and the rollout of COVID-19 vaccinations there accelerates, though increasing case numbers in other countries are set to cap gains.
Brent was up 25 cents, or 0.4 percent, at $63.20 a barrel by 0155 GMT. US crude gained 17 cents, or 0.3 percent, to $59.49 a barrel.
Prices have changed little since a period of volatile trading ended with the close of trading last Monday.
