Oil prices rose on Friday, although demand concerns stemming from rising coronavirus cases. Brent crude rose 0.5%, to $43.52 a barrel, and U.S. WTI crude rose by 0.3%, to $41.19. The United States on Thursday recorded over 1,000 deaths from COVID-19. While the rise in infections has fears of renewed government lockdowns, worries that oil demand could also be hit by tensions between the United States and China - the world’s top two oil consumers.
