Oil Up Modestly, Scores Three-Session Win: Report

Oil futures finished higher Monday to score gains for a third session in a row, with some economic data pointing to better prospects for demand, MarketWatch reported. But prices only saw a slight gain as U.S. political wrangling on the fiscal cliff of spending cuts and tax hikes wore on.

January crude oil rose 18 cents, or 0.2%, to settle at $89.09 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange after gaining 2.8% in the past two sessions.

Prices on Monday touched an intraday high above $90.
