The West Texas Intermediate (WTI) for March delivery gained 72 cents, or 0.98 percent, to settle at 74.11 U.S. dollars a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Brent crude for April delivery added 1.05 dollars, or 1.31 percent, to settle at 80.99 dollars a barrel on the London ICE Futures Exchange.
