Oil Prices Rise

Oil prices increased on the back of expectation that the U.S. will expand pandemic aid payments, which could spur fuel demand, and which also encouraged investors to take on more risk in hopes of stronger economic growth.

Brent crude was up 44 cents at $51.30 a barrel, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude futures added 51 cents, to $48.13 a barrel.
