The market had stumbled after U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told CNBC that Huawei Technologies Co. and other Chinese companies pose national security threats to the U.S. A recovery came as focus switched to analyst forecasts that U.S. crude stockpiles last week fell for the first time in three weeks. The American Petroleum Institute was said to reporta 3.45 million-barrel drawdown of crude supplies.

October WTI settled 1 cent lower at $56.13 a barrel at Tuesday™s close. The September contract, which expired Tuesday, ended 13 cents higher at $56.34.
