Oil prices extended gains for a second session on Friday as the prospect of lower exports from Russia offset rising inventories in the United States.

For the week, oil prices are slightly lower, after the previous week’s about 4% declines, dragged by concerns about rising interest rates that could strengthen the dollar as well as a ninth straight week of U.S. crude stocks build.
