Oil Prices Rise as Gulf Producers Recover From Ida

Oil prices nabbed a win today, as U.S. Gulf of Mexico producers worked towards increased output after Hurricane Ida. However, a lid was kept on gains as the dollar moved higher and concerns mounted over the impact of Covid-19 infections. October-dated crude rose 95 cents, or 1.4%, to settle at $69.30 a barrel. 

The strengthening dollar put pressure on gold prices today, as did rising U.S. Treasury yields. In response, gold dipped to a two-week low. December-dated gold dropped $5.00, or 0.3%, to settle at $1,793.50 an ounce.
