Oil futures gained some in Asia on Tuesday after losing more than half of Friday's gains overnight. That as low trading volume can make for sizable trading swings.
--On the New York Mercantile Exchange, light sweet crude futures for delivery in September was recently up 0.3% at $47.53 a barrel in the Globex electronic session. October Brent crude on London's ICE Futures rose 0.3% at $51.84.
--With the spread between WTI and Brent topping $4 a barrel for the first time in nearly 2 years last week, that "creates an incentive for U.S. producers to sell crude abroad" and could keep their output high, says S&P Global Platts.
