Brent crude futures were little changed around 4-week highs of $73 a barrel on Friday, after a 2% surge the day before and are on track to book a 0.6% gain on the week. A weaker dollar has been supporting oil prices during the week while investors digest the damage caused by hurricane Ida in the US Gulf of Mexico production and OPEC’s output decision. Meanwhile, OPEC+ decided during the week to add 400,000 barrels per day each month until the end of December, despite pressure from the US to pump more oil. Investors now await the US jobs report for an update on the American labour market recovery and the impact the reading will have on the dollar.
