Driven by simmering tensions between the U.S. and Iran, oil prices continued to trade higher during morning trade in Asia Friday hours after soaring to their highest level for the month.

U.S. WTI crude futures were up 0.47% to $57.40 by 8:36 PM ET (00:30 GMT). Brent crude, traded in London, was up 0.42% to $64.78. The spread between the two key benchmarks is the lowest it has been since April.

Iran admitted shooting down a U.S. drone on Thursday and President Donald Trump has tweeted that “Iran made a very big mistake”.

Last week, two oil tankers were attacked near the Strait of Hormuz, which is a key route for oil out of the Middle East. The U.S. has blamed these attacks on Iran and announced plans to send 1,000 more troops to the region.
