Crude oil futures rose by more than $1 per barrel on Thursday, boosted by positive U.S. economic data and surging gasoline prices as demand was expected to rise.
Investors were also eyeing talks between Western powers and Iran on hopes of an accord over its nuclear program.
U.S. gasoline prices rose close to 2 percent, boosting the entire crude oil complex. Rising demand met with refinery outages in Europe and the United States, tightening supplies.
Brent crude powered above $110, up more than $2 after gaining the most in a week and ending up $1.14 on Wednesday. U.S. oil added $1.59 to settle at $95.44, after U.S. initial claims data fell far more than analysts expected in the latest week.
