Oil prices were little changed Monday on uncertainty over whether U.S. crude inventories fell or rose last week. The market opened to another tense week amid worries that China may end up buying Iranian oil, escalating its trade war with the United States.
New York-traded West Texas Intermediate crude settled up 43 cents, or 0.8%, at $54.93 per barrel.
London-traded Brent crude, the benchmark for oil outside of the U.S., was up four cents to $58.57.
WTI rallied sharply on Thursday and Friday, but still ended last week down 2% after data showing an across-the-board jump in U.S. oil stockpiles for the week ended Aug 2.
