Oil prices rose on Thursday as a panel of OPEC and its allies met to review record oil supply cuts, even as the market remained concerned about additional coronavirus cases reported in parts of the United States and China.
Brent crude futures were up 78 cents at $41.48 a barrel and West Texas Intermediate crude futures gained 88 cents, or 2.32%, to settle at $38.84 per barrel.
“You’re going to see more OPEC compliance,” said Phil Flynn, senior oil analyst at Price Futures Group in Chicago. “I think we’d be a lot higher if it weren’t for these coronavirus fears.”
