Oil near $98 as US economy shows improvement

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — The price of oil inched toward $98 a barrel Monday after stronger U.S. hiring suggested demand for crude could increase.

Benchmark U.S. crude for January delivery was up 6 cents at $97.71 a barrel at midafternoon Kuala Lumpur time in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract closed up 27 cents at $97.65 on Friday.

U.S. data showed strong signs of economic recovery.

The Labor Department said Friday that the unemployment rate fell to a five-year low of 7 percent in November after employers added 203,000 jobs last month, more than expected. Earlier data showed the U.S. economy grew at a 3.6 percent annualized rate in July through September, the fastest since early 2012.

Brent crude, a benchmark for international oils, was down 2 cents at $111.59 a barrel on the ICE exchange in London.
