Oil prices rose in early Asian trade on Tuesday, extending gains into a third straight session as markets bet on an improvement in U.S. fuel demand ahead of the memorial day weekend, while a positive tone from lawmakers on raising the debt ceiling also aided sentiment. U.S. gasoline futures shot up this week as markets bet that fuel consumption will pick up with the start of the summer season, which is usually marked by memorial day weekend. A sustained drop in U.S. gasoline inventories over the past two weeks also indicated that demand was picking up. This, coupled with disruptions in Canadian supply due to wildfires in the oil-rich Alberta province, pointed to tighter oil markets in the coming months.
