Oil Turns in Substantial Weekly Gain

Oil prices eked out a gain today, putting their weekly win at 2.3%. Crude for October delivery gained 64 cents, or 0.7%, to settle at $87.51 per barrel for the day.

Gold prices inched higher Friday, ahead of next week's U.S. consumer price index (CPI) reading, which is likely to play a big role in the Fed's interest-rate decision later this month. December-dated gold added 20 cents, or less than 0.1%, to settle at $1,942.70 an ounce for the day, but lost 1.2% this week.
