Oil prices gained on Monday in Asia amid Middle East tensions.

U.S. Crude Oil WTI Futures inched up 0.1% to $52.83 by 1:05 AM ET (05:05 GMT). International Brent Oil Futures gained 0.2% to $62.13.

Attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman were cited as providing continuing support to the oil markets. Prices had jumped as much as 4.5% on Thursday following the news.

The U.S. blamed Iran for the attacks, as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said it was œunmistakable that Iran was responsible for the hit. His comments prompted a denial and criticism from Tehran.
