July delivery US West Texas Intermediate crude futures added 0.88%, trading at $48.08 in New York, while in London, August delivery futures soared 0.92%, being worth $50.41 a barrel.

The previous week on Friday, crude futures settled at the lowest value in more than three weeks, with prices suffering their greatest weekly loss in a month amid ascending worries over soaring shale output in America.
