SINGAPORE: Oil prices extended gains from the previous session on Thursday on signs of stronger demand in the US, where data showed slower inflation than markets expected, bolstering the argument for an interest rate cut that could drive greater consumption, according to Reuters.

Brent futures rose 32 cents, or 0.4 percent, to $83.07 a barrel at 9:20 a.m. Saudi time, while US West Texas Intermediate crude gained 31 cents, or 0.4 percent, to $78.94.
