Crude oil gained more ground on Tuesday, with prices underpinned by expectations of U.S. stimulus and a rebound in Asian demand as economies reopen. Brent crude added 0.5%, to $45.21 a barrel, U.S. WTI crude rose 0.8%, to $42.26 a barrel. Prices found support after U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted that top congressional Democrats wanted to meet with him on coronavirus-related economic relief. A weaker U.S. dollar also helped support higher oil prices.
