Oil Snaps Six-Day Losing Streak

Oil prices snapped a six-session losing stretch, with April-dated crude futures adding $1.44, or 2%, to settle at $75.39 per barrel. Black gold found support from U.S. gasoline inventories declining, despite a ninth-straight week of rising crude supplies.

Gold futures finished near a two-month low, notching their fourth-straight loss as investors continued to mull over the Fed's latest meeting minutes. In response, April-dated gold shed $14.70, or 0.8%, to settle at $1,826.80 per ounce -- its lowest settlement since Dec. 30.
