Oil prices mixed on easing COVID curbs in China, firm dollar

NNA - Oil futures were mixed on Friday, as hopes for further relaxation of COVID curbs in China, which could help demand recover in the world's second biggest economy, boosted market sentiment, but a firmer U.S. dollar capped gains.

Brent crude futures were down 1 cent, or 0.01%, at $86.87 per barrel by 0731 GMT, after earlier rising to $87.40.

U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures slipped 21 cents, or 0.3%, to $81.01 per barrel, after climbing to $81.63 earlier in the session.--Reuters
