Benchmark crude for May rose 2 cents to $88.03 at late afternoon Bangkok time in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contact rose 28 cents to finish at $88.01 per barrel on the Nymex on Friday.
Analysts said relatively low prices rekindled interest among buyers. Traders cautiously returned to buying certain key commodities Friday, including gold and oil, after big sell-offs.
They also said prices are being supported by the possibility that oil-producing countries could reduce output in order to boost prices. Crude has lost about $9 a barrel since the beginning of the month amid concerns of sluggish growth in China and the U.S., while oil remained well supplied.
Traders were awaiting the release later Monday of existing home sales for March in the US, data that will help clarify which direction the U.S. economy is headed. The release of corporate earnings from companies like heavy equipment maker Caterpillar and toy maker Hasbro will shed light on the private sector.
Brent crude, which is used to price oil used by many U.S. refiners, fell 5 cents to $99.60 on the ICE Futures exchange in London.
