Brent crude rises $4 on Syria turmoil, weaker dollar

NEW YORK, Oct 4 (Reuters) - Brent crude futures extended gains to more than $4 on Thursday as inflamed tensions between Turkey and Syria, a weaker dollar and refinery fires pushing up refined products futures pulled crude oil prices higher.

Brent November crude was up $4.01 at $112.18 a barrel at 2:22 p.m. EDT (1822 GMT), having traded from $108.02 to $112.36.
