Oil prices jumped by more than $1 a barrel on Monday to their highest in more than a month, supported by ongoing output cuts and signs of gradual recovery in fuel demand as more countries ease curbs imposed to stop the coronavirus pandemic spreading.

Brent crude climbed $1.34, or 4.1%, to $33.84 a barrel by 12:44 GMT, after touching a high since April 13. U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude was up $1.40, or 4.8%, at $30.83 a barrel, the highest in nine weeks or since March 16.

The June WTI contract expires on Tuesday, but there was little sign of WTI repeating the historic plunge below zero seen last month on the eve of the May contract's expiry amid signs that demand for crude and derived fuels is recovering from its nadir.
