    Oil prices edge up off three-month lows, but demand concerns persist

    Abstract:Brent crude rose $1.01, or 2.5%, to settle at $40.79 a barrel. The benchmark dropped more than 5% on Tuesday to fall below $40 for the first time since June.

      Oil futures on Wednesday clawed back some of the losses they sustained in the previous session, but a rebound in Covid-19 cases in some countries undermined hopes for a steady recovery in global demand.

      Brent crude rose $1.01, or 2.5%, to settle at $40.79 a barrel. The benchmark dropped more than 5% on Tuesday to fall below $40 for the first time since June.

      US crude rose $1.29, or 3.5% to settle at $38.05 a barrel, having fallen nearly 8% in the previous session.

      That lifted the major benchmarks off Tuesday‘s levels near three-month lows. Prices fell this week after Saudi Arabia’s state oil company Aramco cut the October official selling prices for its Arab light oil, a sign of softening demand.
