For the week, U.S. benchmark oil prices are on track to climb 0.3%, according to FactSet data. Looking ahead, investors await a weekly report from Baker Hughes on rigs drilling for oil, with the oil-field services firm reporting last week that the number of rigs drilling for oil fell by 5 to 691.January Brent crude BRNF20, -1.94%, the international benchmark, shed 91 cents, or 1.5%, to $61.38 a barrel on ICE Futures Europe, following a 0.9% gain on Thursday.
